Office of the North Carolina Corporation Commission, 

Raleigh, jST. C., December 31, 1907. 
His Excellency, R. B. Glenn, 

Governor of North Carolina, 

Raleigh, N. C. 

Sir : — Herewith we hand you our report for the year 1907, it being 
the Ninth Annual Report of the Corporation Commission, and we 
desire to call your attention to some of the matters contained therein. 

We publish in this report the statute creating the Corporation Com- 
mission, and all amendatory statutes relating to the Commission or 
its duties; the tariffs of rates and the classification of the Southern 
Express Company and of each railroad in the State ; the rules and 
regulations of the Corporation Commission ; the cases disposed of by 
the Corporation Commission during the calendar year; the annual 
reports of railroad companies, street railway companies, telegraph 
companies and the Southern Express Company, for the fiscal year 
ending June 30, 1907. 

This report also contains the assessment of all property required by 
law to be assessed by the Corporation Commission, and shows the dis- 
tribution thereof to the counties and municipalities of the State. It 
also shows the amount of incomes returned for taxation, with the 
taxes computed thereon, and the distribution of same, by counties. 
It contains reports of the condition of business on December 3, 1907, 
in each of the 283 State, savings and private banks over which the 
Corporation Commission exercises supervision. 

railroads. 

There was in operation in the State during the year 4,106 miles of 
railroad, not including double and side tracks. This is an increase 



IV 1ST. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

of 115 miles over the railroad mileage of last year, and there are now 
nnder construction in -the State several short lines of railroad, which, 
when completed, will materially add to the present mileage. 

The gross earnings of steam railroads in North Carolina for the 
year ending June 30, 1907, were $28,291,730, an increase of $2,- 
653,177 over the gross earnings of the previous year. 

The total passenger earnings amounted to $7,500,402, and the total 
freight earnings amounted to $20,181,421. The remainder of the 
earnings, amounting to $344,040, is derived from other sources. 

The total expenses for the fiscal year amounted to $20,303,224, an 
increase of $3,381,788 over the previous year. 

FACILITIES. 

It has been the constant purpose of the Corporation Commission to 
secure, as far as possible, facilities for the convenience of passengers 
and shippers, and to enable the carriers to move promptly the business 
offered them. 

ACCIDENTS. 

We regret to say there has been some increase in the number of 
accidents to persons, along with the increase in traffic, passengers and 
employees. It may be the one is not out of proportion to the other, 
but the Commission has endeavored in every way in its power to lessen 
the risk to life and property by urging the extension of safety devices, 
the establishment of proper rules, and the elimination of grade cross- 
ings wherever practicable, as well as by the improvement of the road- 
beds, bridges and trestles. As a result, the block system has been 
extended over 512 miles of road. 

It is impossible for any road to abolish all of its grade crossings at 
once, but, as the population and travel increase and the danger at 
these crossings multiplies, it is important that the most dangerous of 
them be eliminated as rapidly as possible. 

One hundred and sixty- three persons were killed and 1,255 were 
injured on account of the various railroads in the State in 1907. Of 
those killed, 53 were employees, 21 were passengers and 82 were tres- 
passers. Of those injured, 737 were employees, 301 were passengers 
and 111 were trespassers. Six hundred and twenty-four persons were 
injured by other causes than the movement of trains. A complete 
tabulation of this subject will be found in this report. 



LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL, 



PASSENGER FACILITIES. 



The Corporation Commission has also caused a number of new 
trains to be operated for the benefit of the traveling public, to-wit, 
double daily passenger train between Goldsboro and Greensboro (this 
train alone is estimated to cost $75,000 a year) ; Weldon and Kinston, 
Tarboro and Plymouth, Pocky Mount and Spring Hope, Hamlet and 
Wilmington, Raleigh and Weldon, Boykins and Lewiston, Fayette- 
ville and Bennettsville, Salisbury and Asheville, and Parmele and 
Washington. The combined mileage of these trains amounts to 1,520 
miles daily. 

The Commission has also secured connection between the railways 
at Sanford, Maxton, New Bern, Hobgood, Kinston and other points 
in the State. 

In order to promote the safety of the traveling public, as well as to 
aid in the transportation of freights, the Corporation Commission has 
caused the replacement of old ties and rails by new ties and heavier 
rails, and has caused considerable ditching and ballasting to be done 
on much of the Seaboard Air Line Pailway between Hamlet and Wil- 
mington and some between Monroe and Putherf ordton ; also, on the 
High Point, Randleman, Ashboro and Southern and the Atlantic 
and Yadkin branches of the Southern, and upon various other roads 
in the State. 

ASSESSMENT FOR TAXATION. 

One of the most important duties of the Corporation Commission 
is the assessment of railroad and other similar properties for taxation. 

The assessed value of railroad property in the State prior to the 
establishment of a Commission amounted to $12,321,704. The mile- 
age in the State then was 3,432 miles. The aggregate assessment of 
railroad property in 1907 is $83,109,562, while the mileage is 
4,106.22 miles. While the mileage has increased 19.6 per cent., the 
assessment for taxation has increased 574.49 per cent. 

The aggregate assessment of all properties assessed by the Corpora- 
tion Commission in 1903 was $73,-802,686, and in 1907 it is $87,- 
688,375, an increase of $13,885,688, or of 18.8 per cent, in valuation 
since the previous general assessment. 

The property of the different railroads is apportioned according to 
mileage, and the amount certified to each county, municipality and

tax district through which they operate. The counties to which are 
certified the largest amounts are as follows, in the order named : 

1. Those with railroad property amounting to over $3,000,000 
each — Robeson and Guilford. 

2. Those with railroad property amounting to over $2,000,000 
each — Wake, Mecklenburg, Johnston, Columbus, Halifax and Cum- 
berland. 

3. Those with railroad property amounting to over $1,700,000 
each — Durham, Rowan, Pender, Wayne, Granville, Forsyth and Pitt. 

Last year the property assessed for taxation by the Corporation 
Commission amounted approximately to $76,250,549 ; this year it will 
approximate $91,724,853. 

' LAW SUITS. 

In enforcing its orders the Corporation Commission has had a num- 
ber of law suits from time to time. It is gratifying to note that, in all 
these cases except one, the Commission has been sustained. The most 
important of them was the Selma connection case, which was finally 
decided by the Supreme Court of the United States, in January, 
1907. The decisions in this case have done much to establish the 
power of the Commission and have enabled it to be of great benefit to 
the State in securing many of the facilities above referred to. 

STREET RAILWAYS. 

The street railways reporting to the Commission show capital stock 
amounting to $3,371,500, as against $2,379,700 in 1903. Their 
gross earnings for the fiscal year were $1,047,806 in 1906, and in 
1907 were $1,269,667. Operating expenses for the same period in 
1906 were $746,763, and in 1907 amounted to $939,402. The mile- 
age has grown from 56.88 miles street railways operated in 1903 to 
81.08 miles in 1906 and 86.86 miles in 1907. 

The street railways of Raleigh, Durham and Winston-Salem each 
carried more than a million passengers this year. Charlotte and Wil- 
mington carried more than two million each, and Asheville carried in 
excess of three millions. 

TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH COMPANIES. 

There are 75 telephone companies in the State, with a capital stock 
of $2,563,663. Their reports show that they have 10,000 business 



LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL. VII 

'phones and 15,000 residence 'phones in use. Their mileage consists 
of 5,000 miles of poles and 28,000 miles, of wires. They are assessed 
for taxes at $1,298,780. 

There are only four telegraph companies in the State, the largest 
being the Western Union Telegraph Company, with nearly 4,000 
miles of poles and nearly 22,000 miles of wires. The aggregate as- 
sessed value of the companies amounts to $902,863. 

BANKS. 

The General Assembly, at its session in 1899, placed the State, pri- 
vate and savings banks under the supervision of the Corporation Com- 
mission. At that time there were only 65 banks, with $2,307,297 
capital stock, $7,477,512 deposits and $11,275,490 total resources. 
Kow there are 283 banks, with a capital stock of $7,657,764, deposits 
amounting to $34,958,137, and total resources aggregating $51,- 
883,687. 

Five reports are made by each bank annually, and at least one 
examination is made in person by the bank examiner during the calen- 
dar year. The last report from the banks showed that, although a 
panic had been in effect for some time, and with serious results in 
some parts of the country, no State bank had been forced to close its 
doors and the deposits had shrunk only $336,635, out of a total of 
$35,295,772. 

It is a significant fact that new banks continue to be chartered and 
opened for business. 

In examining this report it will be seen that it has been a busy year 
with the Commission, every department of its work being crowded 
with business, and perhaps no previous year has been more fruitful of 
results. 

The growth in railroad construction, the enlargement of facilities 
for handling business, the increased movement of passengers and 
freight, the extension of devices and improvements for the safety of 
life and property, the increasing number of complaints and decisions, 
the constantly recurring questions involving the study, construction 
and changes in tariffs and classification of rates, the assessment of 
public-service corporations for taxation, the supervision of express, 
telephone and telegraph companies, street railways, and the wonder- 
ful development and growth in banking, all give some indication of 
the volume and importance of the work of the Commission.

IV. Appeals. 

1074. Right of ; how taken. From all decisions or determinations made 
by the corporation commission any party affected thereby shall be entitled to

days after notice of such* decision or determination, file with the commission 
exceptions to the decision or determination of the commission, which excep- 
tions shall state the grounds of objection to such decision or determination. 
If any one of such exceptions shall be overruled, then such party may appeal 
from the order overruling the exception, and shall, within ten days after the 
decision overruling the exception, give notice of his appeal. When an excep- 
tion is made to the facts as found by the commission, the appeal shall be to 
the superior court in term time; otherwise to the judge of the superior court 
at chambers. The party appealing shall, within ten days after the notice of 
appeal has been served, file with the commission exceptions to the decision or 
determination overruling the exceptions, which statement shall assign the 
errors complained of and the grounds of the appeal. Upon the filing of such 
statement the commission shall, within ten days, transmit all the papers and 
evidence considered by it, together with the assignment of errors filed by the 
appellant, to a judge of the superior court holding court or residing in some 
district in which such company operates or the party resides. If there be no 
exceptions to any facts as found by the commission, it shall be heard by the 
judge at chambers at some place in the district, of which all parties shall have 
ten days' notice. 1899, c. 164, ss. 7, 28 ; 1903, c. 126. 

1075. Appeal docketed ; priority of trial ; burden. The cause shall be 
entitled "State of North Carolina on relation of the Corporation Commission 
against (here insert name of appellant)," and if there are exceptions to any 
facts found by the commission, it shall be placed on the civil issue docket of 
such court and shall have precedence of other civil actions, and shall be tried 
under the same rules and regulations as are prescribed for the trial of other 
civil causes, except that the rates fixed or the decision or determination made 
by the commission shall be prima facie just and reasonable. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 
Note. See s. 1112. 

1076. Heard at chambers by consent. By consent of all parties the appeal 
may be heard and determined at chambers before any judge of a district 
through or into which the railroad may extend, or any judge holding court 
therein, or in which the person or company does business. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 

1077. To supreme court. Either party may appeal to the supreme court 



ACTS RELATING TO THE COMMISSION. 5 

from the judgment of the superior court under the same rules and regulations 
as are prescribed by law for appeals, except that the state of North Carolina 
if it shall appeal shall not be required to give any undertaking or make any 
deposit to secure the cost of such appeal, and such court may advance the 
cause on its docket so as to give the same a speedy hearing. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 

1078. Rates vacated pending appeal, how. The rates of freight and fare 
fixed by the commission shall be and remain the established rates and shall 
be so observed and regarded by corporations appealing until the same shall be 
changed, reversed or modified by the judgment of the superior court, unless 
the railroad company shall within fifteen days file with said commission a 
justified undertaking, in a sum to be fixed by the commission, conditioned to 
pay the state of North Carolina the difference between the aggregate freights 
charged or received and those fixed by said commission, and to make a report 
of freights charged or received every three months during the pendency of 
such appeal ; and whenever such difference in freights equals or exceeds the 
penalty of such undertaking the commission may require another to be exe- 
cuted and filed with them. From the time the undertaking first mentioned is 
filed the judgment appealed from shall be vacated ; but a failure for ten days 
to file any additional undertaking required by the commission shall eo instanti 
revive such judgment. Out of the funds paid into the state treasury under 
this section there shall be refunded to shippers the overpaid freight ascer- 
tained by the final determination of the appeal on the recommendation of the 
commission, if application therefor is made within one year from such final 
determination. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 

1079. Judgment superior court not vacated by appeal. Any freight or 
passenger rates fixed by the commission, when approved or confirmed by the 
judgment of the superior court, shall be and remain the established rates and 
shall be so observed and regarded by an appealing corporation until the same 
shall be changed, revised or modified by the final judgment of the supreme 
court, if there shall be an appeal thereto, and until changed by the corpora- 
tion commission. 1899, c. 164, s. 7. 

1080. Judgment on appeal enforced by mandamus. In all cases in which, 
upon appeal, a judgment of the corporation commission is affirmed, in whole 
or in part, the appellate court shall embrace in its decree a mandamus to the 
appellant to put said order in force, or so much thereof as shall be affirmed. 
1905, c. 107, s. 2. 

1081. Peremptory mandamus to enforce order, when no appeal. If no 
appeal is taken from an order or judgment of the corporation commission 
within the time prescribed by law, but the corporation affected thereby fails 
to put said order in operation, the corporation commission may apply to the 
judge riding the superior court district which embraces Wake county, or to 
the resident judge of said district at chambers, upon ten days' notice, for a 
peremptory mandamus upon said corporation for the putting in force of said 
judgment or order; and if said judge shall find that the order of said com- 
mission was valid and within the scope of its powers, he shall issue such 
peremptory mandamus. An appeal shall lie to the supreme court in behalf of 
the corporation commission, or the defendant corporation, from the refusal or 
the granting of such peremptory mandamus. 1905, c. 107.

town, is unreasonable or oppressive, such railroad company may file its peti- 
tion before the corporation commission, setting forth all the facts, and asking

ACTS RELATING TO THE COMMISSION. 11

prayer of the petition. And upon the return day of the notice the corporation 
commission shall hear the petition: Provided, that any hearing granted by 
the corporation commission, as authorized by this section, shall be had at the

ing shall be the same as are fixed by law for similar services in the superior 
court. 1903, c. 552, s. 3. 

VIII. Rates. 

1104. How fixed. In fixing any maximum rate or charge, or tariff of rates 
or charges for any common carrier, person or corporation subject to the pro- 
visions of this chapter the commission shall take into consideration if proved, 
or may require proof of, the value of the property of such carrier, person or 
corporation used for the public, in the consideration of such rate or charge, or 
the fair value of the service rendered in determining the value of the property 
so being used for the convenience of the public. It shall furthermore consider 
the original cost of the construction thereof and the amount expended in per- 
manent improvements thereon and the present compared with the original cost 
of construction of all its property within the state ; the probable earning 
capacity of such property under the particular rates proposed and the sum 
required to meet the operating expenses of such carrier, person or corporation, 
and all other facts that will enable them 'to determine what are reasonable 
and just rates, charges and tariffs. 1899. c. 164, s. 2, subsec. 1.

attending annual reunions, or the issuance of mileage, excursion or commuta- 
tion passenger tickets ; or to prohibit any common carrier from giving reduced 
rates to ministers of religion, or to municipal governments for the transporta- 
tion of indigent persons, or to inmates of national homes or state homes for 
disabled volunteer soldiers, and of soldiers' and sailors' orphan homes, includ- 
ing those about to enter and those returning home after discharge under 
arrangements with the boards of managers of said homes ; or to prevent rail- 
roads from giving free carriage to their own officers and employees and mem- 
bers of their families, or to prevent the principal officers of any railroad com- 
pany from exchanging passes or tickets with other railroad companies for their 
officers or employees. Nothing in this section shall be construed to prevent 
or restrict transportation companies from contracting with newspapers for 
advertising space in exchange for transportation over their lines to such an 
extent as may be agreed upon between the two parties for said consideration.

railroads and other transportation lines which are under the supervision of the

rier to charge or receive any greater compensation in the aggregate for the 
transportation of passengers or of like kind of property under substantially 
similar circumstances and conditions for a shorter than for a longer distance 
over the same line in the same direction, the shorter being included within the 
longer distance; but this shall not be construed as authorizing any common 
carrier within the terms of this chapter to charge and receive as great com- 
pensation for a shorter as for a longer distance : Provided, however, that 
upon application to the commission, such common carrier may in special cases 
be authorized to charge less for longer than for shorter distances for the 
transportation of passengers or property ; and the commission may from time 
to time prescribe the extent to which such designated common carrier may be 
relieved from the operation of this section: Provided, that nothing in this 
chapter contained shall be taken as in any manner abridging or controlling the 
rates of freight charged by any railroad in this state for conveying freight 
which comes from or goes beyond the boundaries of the state and on which

earnings of any kind by competing railroad companies shall be submitted to 
the commission for inspection and approval in so far as they affect the rules 
and regulations made by the commission to secure to all persons doing business 
with such companies just and reasonable rates of freight and passenger tariffs, 
and the commission may make such rules and regulations as to such contracts 
and agreements as may then be deemed necessary and proper, and any such 
agreements not approved by the commission, or by virtue of which rates shall 
be charged exceeding the rates fixed for freight and passengers, shall be 
deemed, held and taken to be violations of this chapter and shall be illegal and 
void. 1899, c. 164, s. 6. 

1109. Published. All carriers shall, whenever required by the commission, 
file with it a schedule of the rates of charges for freight and passengers, and 
the commission is authorized and required to publish the rates, or a summary

1110. (As amended). Interstate commerce. Upon the complaint of any 
person or community to the commission of any unjust discrimination or 
unjust or unreasonable rate in carrying freight which comes from or goes 
beyond the boundaries of the state by any railroad company, whether organ-

this state, the commission shall investigate such complaint, and if the same

freight. When the consignee presents the railroad receipt to the agent of the 
railroad that delivers such freight such agent shall deliver the articles shipped 
upon payment of the rate charged for the class of freight mentioned in the 
receipt. 1899, c. 164, s. 17.

ing such articles of freight between the receiving and shipping stations ; and 
a delay of two days at the initial point and forty-eight hours at one interme- 
diate point for each hundred miles of distance or fractions thereof over

signees of the correct amount due for freight according to such classification 
and rates, and upon payment or tender of the amount due on any shipment

reasonable time for the arrival thereof. In every case such common carrier

provided for may be united in the same complaint. 1905, c. 330, ss. 2, 4. 5. 

2635. Existing remedies continue. The preceding section shall not deprive

rier. 1905, c. 330, s. 5.

demand any part of the charges for freight or transportation due for such 
portion of the shipment as shall not have reached the place of destination. The 
carrier shall be required to deliver to the consignee such portion of the con- 
signment as shall have been received upon the payment or tende'r of the freight 
charges due upon such portion. But nothing in this section shall be construed 
as interfering with, or depriving a consignor, or other person having authority, 
of his rights of stoppage in transitu. 1893, c. 495. 

2642. Not to receive more than tariff rate. No railroad, steamboat, 
express or other transportation company engaged in the carriage of freight,

and a maximum period of sixty days shall be allowed such company to pay 
claims filed under this section. 1903, c. 590, s. 2. 

2644. Penalty for failure to refund overcharge. Any company failing 
to refund such overcharge, within the time allowed, shall forfeit to the party 
aggrieved the sum of twenty-five dollars for the first day and five dollars per

greater toll, charge or rate for the transportation of any article of freight or 
commodity embraced in the present classification fixed and prescribed, or 
approved by said Corporation Commission, where the initial point of ship- 
ment is on the road or line of one common carrier in this State and the ter- 
minal point of said shipment is on the line or road of another common carrier

tion or otherwise: Provided further, that the Corporation Commission shall 
have power, when it is made to appear that it is just to do so, to exempt from

State liable to assessment for taxation shall be placed upon the assessment 
rolls and assessed at their true value in money. 

(2) To confer with and advise assessing officers as to their duties under 
this act, and to institute proper proceedings to enforce the penalties and lia- 
bilities provided by law for public officers, officers of corporations and indi- 
viduals failing to comply with this act; to prefer charges to the Governor

(3) To receive complaints as to property liable to taxation that has not 
been assessed, or has been fraudulently or improperly assessed, and to investi- 
gate the same, and to take such proceedings as will correct the irregularity 
complained of, if found to exist. 

(4) To see that each county in the State be visited by at least one member 
of the board as often as is necessary, to the end that all complaints concern- 
ing the law of assessment and taxation may be heard ; that information con- 
cerning its workings may be collected ; that all assessing and taxation officers 
comply with the law, and all violations thereof be punished, and that all 
proper suggestions as to amendments and change may be made. 

(5) To require from any register of deeds, clerks of courts, mayors and 
clerks of towns, or any other officer in this State, on forms prescribed by said 
Board of State Tax Commissioners, such annual or other reports as shall 
enable said board to ascertain the assessed valuations of all property listed 
for taxation throughout the State under this act, the amount of taxes 
assessed, collected and returned delinquent, and such other matters as the 
board may require, to the end that it may have complete and statistical infor- 
mation as to the practical operation of this act. That every such officer men- 
tioned in this section who shall willfully neglect or refuse to furnish any 
report required by the Commission, for the purposes of this act, or who shall 
willfully and unlawfully hinder, delay or obstruct said Commission in the 
discharge of its duties, shall forfeit and pay one hundred dollars for each 
offense, to be recovered in an action in the name of the State. A delay of ten 
days to make and furnish such report shall raise the presumption that the 
same was willful.

by published reports and statistics, and can be ascertained by correspondence 
with officers thereof, and, with the aid of information thus obtained, together 
with experience and observation of our own laws, to recommend to the Legis- 
lature at each regular session thereof such amendments, changes or modifica- 
tions of our revenue laws as seem proper and necessary to remedy injustice 
and irregularities in taxation, and to facilitate the assessment and collection 
of public revenues.

collected in the State for all purposes, classified as to State, county, township 
and municipal purposes, with the sources thereof; the amount lost; the cause 
of the loss ; the proceedings of said board, and such other matters of informa- 
tion concerning the public revenues as it may deem of public interest. 

(8) To discharge such other duties as are or may be prescribed by law. 

Sec. 7. Board to make annual report to the Governor. 

The Board of State Tax Commissioners shall, on or before the first day of

have been passed upon by the County Board of Equalization, the said several 
tax lists shall be subject to inspection by the said Board of State Tax Com- 
missioners, or by any member thereof ; and in case it shall appear or be made

from said list, the said board may issue an order directing the assessor or 
lister whose assessment or failure to assess is complained against, to appear 
with his tax list at a time and place to be stated in said order, and the place 
to be at the office of the Board of County Commissioners at the county-seat, 
or such other place in said county in which said roll was made as said board 
shall deem most convenient for the hearing herein provided for. A notice of 
the time and place that said assessor or lister is ordered to appear, with said 
list, shall be published in a newspaper published at the county-seat in said 
county, if there be one ; if not, in some paper printed in said county, if there 
be any, at least five days before the time at which said assessor or lister is 
required to appear, and personal notice shall be given by mail to said persons 
whose property or whose assessments are to be considered, at least five days 
prior to said hearing. A copy of said order shall be served upon the tax 
officer in whose possession said list shall be, at least three days before he is 
required to appear with said list. The said board, or any member thereof, 
shall appear at the time and place mentioned in said order, and the assessing 
or listing officer upon whom said notice shall have been served shall appear 
also with said tax list. The said board or any member thereof, as the case 
may be, shall then and there hear and determine as to the proper assessments 
of all property and persons mentioned in said notice, and persons affected or 
liable to be affected by the review of said assessments thus provided for may 
appear and be heard at said hearing. In case said board, or the member 
thereof who shall act in said review, shall determine that the assessments 
so reviewed are not assessed according to law, he or they shall, in a column 
provided for that purpose, place opposite said property the true and lawful 
assessment of the same. As to the property not on the tax list, the said 
board, or member thereof acting in said review, shall place the same upon 
said tax list by proper description, and shall place thereafter in the proper 
column the true cash value of the same. In case of review under this section, 
the said board, or the member thereof acting in said review, shall certify un- 
der his hand officially and spread upon said list a certificate of the day and 
date at which said tax list was reviewed by him, and the changes made by 
him therein. For appearing with said list as required herein the tax officer 
shall receive the same pay per diem as is received by him in the preparation 
of the tax list, to be presented to and paid by the proper officers of the county 
or municipality of which he is the assessing officer in the manner as his other 
compensation is paid. The action of said board or member taken as provided 
in this act shall be final.

Sec. 48. Manner of assessment. 

Said Corporation Commission shall first ascertain the true cash value of 
the entire property owned by the said association, company, copartnership or 
corporation from said statements or otherwise for that purpose, taking the 
aggregate value of all the shares of capital stock, in case shares have a market

cumbered by a mortgage or mortgages such board shall ascertain the true cash 
value of such property by adding to the market value of the aggregate shares 
of stock or to the value of the capital, in case there should be no such shares, 
the aggregate amounts of such mortgage or mortgages, and the result shall be 
deemed and treated as the true cash value of the property of such associa- 
tion, company, copartnership or corporation. Such Board of Corporation Com- 
missioners shall, for the purpose of ascertaining the true cash value of the 
property within the State of North Carolina, next ascertain, from such state- 
ments or otherwise, the assessed value for taxation in the localities where the 
same is situated of the several pieces of real estate situated within the State 
of North Carolina and not specifically used in the 'general business of such 
associations, companies, copartnerships or corporations, which said assessed 
value for taxation shall be by said board deducted from the gross value of 
the property as above ascertained. Said State Board of Corporation Commis- 
sioners shall next ascertain and assess the true cash value of the property of 
the associations, companies, copartnerships or corporations within the State 
of North Carolina by taking as a guide, as far as practicable, the proportion 
of the whole aggregate value of said associations, companies, copartnerships 
or corporations as above ascertained, after deducting the assessed value of 
such real estate without the State which the length of lines of said associa- 
tions, companies, copartnerships or corporations, in the case of telegraph and 



ACTS RELATING TO THE COMMISSION. 41 

telephone companies within the State of North Carolina, bears to the total 
length thereof, and in the case of express companies and sleeping-car com- 
panies the proportion shall be the proportion of the whole aggregate value, 
after such deduction, which the length of the lines or routes within the State 
of North Carolina bears to the whole length of lines or routes of such asso- 
ciations, companies, copartnerships or corporations, and such amount so ascer- 
tained shall be deemed and held as the entire value of the property of said 
associations, companies, copartnerships or corporations within the State of 
North Carolina. The Corporation Commission shall also assess the value for 
taxation of all real estate, structures, machinery and appliances of telegraph 
and telephone companies within the State subject to local taxation, and this 
assessment shall be certified by the Commission to the localities in which such 
property is situated. From the entire value of the property within the State 
so ascertained there shall be deducted by the Commissioners the assessed 
value for taxation of all real estate, structures, machinery and appliances 
within the State and subject to local taxation in the counties as hereinbefore 
described in sections forty, forty-one, forty-two, forty-three, forty-four and 
forty-five of this act, and the residue of such value so ascertained, after 
deducting therefrom the assessed value of such local properties, shall be by 
said board assessed to said association. 

Sec. 49. Value per mile. 

Said Corporation Commission shall thereupon ascertain the value per mile 
of the property within the State by dividing the total value, as above ascer- 
tained after deducting the specific properties locally assessed within the State, 
by the number of miles within the State, and the result shall be deemed and 
held as value per mile of the property of such association, company, copart- 
nership or corporation within the State of North Carolina. 

Sec. 50. Total value for each county. 

Said Corporation Commission shall thereupon, for the purpose of determin- 
ing what amount shall be assessed by it to said association, company, copart- 
nership or corporation in each county in the State through, across and into 
or over which the line of said association, company, copartnership or corpora- 
tion extends, multiply the .value per mile, as above ascertained, by the number 
of miles in each of such counties as reported in said statements or as other- 
wise ascertained, and the result thereof shall be by the clerk of said board 
certified to the chairman of the Board of County Commissioners, respectively, 
of the several counties through, into, over or across which the lines or routes 
of said association, company, copartnership or corporation extend. All taxes 
due the State from any corporation taxed under the preceding sections, except

pany direct to the State Treasurer.

any county in this State, in addition to other remedies provided by law for

Attorney-General may, at his option, unite in one action the entire amount of 
the tax due, or may bring separate actions to each separate county or adjoin- 
ing counties, as he may prefer. All collections of taxes for or on account of 
any particular county made in any such suit or suits shall be by said board 
accounted for as a credit to the respective counties for or on account of which 
such collections were made by the said board at the next ensuing settlement 
with such county, but the penalty so collected shall be credited to the general 
fund of the State ; and upon such settlement being made, the treasurers of the 
several counties shall, at their next settlements, enter credits upon the proper 
duplicates in their offices, and at the next settlement with such county report

action the amount of assessment fixed by said Corporation Commission and 
apportioned to such county shall not be controverted.

Sec. 55. Tangible and intangible property assessed separately. 

(a) At such dates as real estate is required to be assessed for taxation, the 
said Commission shall first determine the value of the tangible property of 
each division or branch of such railroad, of rolling-stock and all other physi- 
cal or tangible property. This value shall be determined by a due considera- 
tion of the actual cost of replacing the property, with a just allowance for 
depreciation on rolling-stock, and also of other conditions, to be considered as 
in the case of private property. 

(b) They shall then assess the value of the franchise, which shall be 
determined by due consideration of the gross earnings as compared with the 
operating expenses ; and particularly by consideration of the value placed 
upon the whole property by the public (the value of the physical property 
being deducted), as evidenced by the market value of all capital stock, certifi-

cates of indebtedness, bonds or any other securities, the value of which is 
based upon the earning capacity of the property. 

(c) The aggregate value of the physical or tangible property and the fran- 
chise, as thus determined, shall be the true value of the property for the pur- 
pose of an ad valorem taxation, and shall be apportioned in the same propor- 
tion that the length of such road in each county bears to the entire length of 
such division or branch thereof; and the Corporation Commission shall certify 
on or before the fifteenth day of August to the chairman of the County Com- 
missioners and the mayor of each city or incorporated town the amount ap- 
portioned to his county, city or town ; and the said Commission shall make 
and forward a like certificate to the Auditor of the State. All taxes due the 
State from any railroad company, except the tax imposed for school purposes, 
shall be paid by the treasurer of each company directly to the State Treasurer 
within thirty days after the first day of July of each year; and upon failure 
to pay the State Treasurer as aforesaid, he shall institute an action to enforce 
the same in the county of Wake or any other county in which such railroad 
is located, adding thereto twenty-five per centum of the tax. The Board of 
County Commissioners of each county through which said railroad passes shall 
assess against the same only the tax imposed by the State for school purposes 
and those imposed for county purposes. 

Sec. 56. Railroads.

any other State, the said Commission shali ascertain the value of railroad 
track, rolling-stock, and all other property liable to assessment by the Corpo- 
ration Commission, of such company, as provided in the next preceding sec- 
tion, and divide it in the proportion that the length of such main line of road in 
this State bears to the whole length of such main line of road, and determine 
the value in this State accordingly. On or after the first Monday in July 
the said Commission shall give a hearing to all the companies interested 
touching the valuation and assessment of their property. The said Commis- 
sion may, if they see fit, require all arguments and communications to be pre- 
sented in writing. 

Sec. 57. Railroads. 

If the property of any railroad company be leased or operated by any other 
corporation, foreign or domestic, the property of the lessor or company whose 
property is operated shall be subject to taxation in the manner hereinbefore 
directed. And if the lessee or operating company, being a foreign corporation, 
be the owner or possessor of any property in this State other than that which 
it derives from the lessor or company whose property is operated, it shall be 
assessed in respect to such property in like manner as any domestic railroad 
company. 

Sec 58. Railroads. 

The Corporation Commission shall have power to summon and examine wit- 
nesses and require that books and papers shall be presented to them for the 
purpose of obtaining such information as may be necessary to aid in determin- 
ing the valuation of any railroad company. Any president, secretary, re-

ply with such order and pay the cost of his imprisonment. 

Sec. 59. Canal and steamboat companies.

in proportion to length at the highest rate at which property of that kind is 
assessed by them.

can receive and act on the report made by the examiner of such bank, and 
have a receiver appointed for the purpose of winding up and settling the 
affairs of such bank, banking institution or banker, according to law ; and the 
Corporation Commission is hereby empowered, in its own name, to institute 
and maintain civil actions for the appointment of receivers in such cases, and 
for such other relief as may be necessary or proper to protect the creditors of 
such bank. The Commissioners in their judgment may grant such bank, cor- 
poration or individual sixty days in which to correct any errors or irregulari- 
ties, and make good any deficiencies or losses shown in any reports or other- 
wise. 1903, c. 275, s. 30.

appointed for a failing bank or banking institution or corporation doing a 
banking business, the said receiver shall be under the control of the Corpora-

with the orders or decrees of the court made in the case. 1907, c. 829, s. 13.

tions, it shall be his duty to hold and detain such person until a warrant can 
be procured for his arrest; and for such purpose such examiner shall have and 
possess all the powers of a peace officer of such county, and may arrest without 
warrant for past offenses. Upon report of his action to the Corporation Com- 
mission, it may direct the release of the person so held, or, if in its judgment 
such person should be prosecuted, the Commission shall cause the solicitor of 
the judicial district in which such detention is had to be promptly notified, and 
the action against such person shall be continued a reasonable time to enable 
such solicitor to be present at the trial. 



3324. Examiner making false report. If any bank examiner shall know-

insolvent bank ; or if any such examiner shall receive or accept any bribe or 
gratuity, given for the purpose of inducing him not to file any report of an 
examination of any bank made by him, or shall neglect to make an examina-

RULES OF PRACTICE 

IN 

CASES AMD PROCEEDINGS 

BEFORE THE COURT OF THE NORTH CAROLINA 
CORPORATION COMMISSION. 



Public Sessions. 

1. The general sessions of the court for the hearing of contested cases will be 
held at its office in the agricultural building, Raleigh, N. C, on the first Wed- 
nesday of each month at 11 o'clock A. M. When special sessions are held at 
other places such regulations as may be necessary will be made by the court. 

Parties. 

2. Where a complaint concerns anything done or omitted to be done by only 
a single carrier no other need be made a party, but if it relates to joint tariffs, 
or matters in which two or more carriers doing business under a common con- 
trol, management or arrangement for a continuous carriage or shipment are 
interested, all the carriers constituting such line must be made parties. . A 
complaint may embrace several carriers, or lines of carriers, operated sepa- 
rately, in the same proceeding, when the subject-matter of the complaint 
involves substantially the same alleged violation of the law by the several 
carriers or lines. Persons or carriers not parties may apply, in any pending 
case or proceeding, for leave to intervene and to be heard upon the questions 
involved. 

GENERAL RULES. 

Proceedings Before the Court. 

3. All petitions and complaints made before the court for redress of alleged 
grievances must plainly and distinctly set forth the grounds of complaint, 
the items being numbered and objections all set forth in writing. In like man- 
ner all defenses must be distinctly set forth in writing, and the items num- 
bered as above stated. These specifications, whether of complaint or defense, 
may be accompanied, if the parties desire, by an explanation or argument, 
or by any suggestion as to the proper remedy or policy, and may be veri- 
fied by the affidavit of the party complaining or petitioning, taken before any 
person authorized to administer oaths in North Carolina, and when the com- 
plaint or petition is verified, then the answer thereto shall be verified, and the 
verification shall conform to the rules prescribed in The Code of North Caro- 
lina for the verification of pleadings. The parties may also be heard in person 
or by attorney, or by written argument, upon such written statement being 
first filed. 

4. If a carrier complained against shall deem the complaint insufficient to 
show a breach of legal duty, it may, instead of filing an answer, serve on the 
complainant notice for a hearing of the case on the complaint ; and in case of 



RULES OF PRACTICE. 



57 



the service of such notice, the facts stated in the complaint will be taken as 
admitted. A copy of the notice must at the same time be filed with the court. 
The filing of an answer will not be deemed an admission of the sufficiency of 
the complaint, but a motion to dismiss for insufficiency may be made at the 
hearing. 

See vice of Papers. 

5. Copies of notices or other papers must be served upon the opposite parties 
to the proceeding, personally or by mail, and when any party shall have ap- 
peared by attorney, the service upon the attorney shall be deemed proper ser- 
vice upon the party. If party so notified shall fail to answer within ten days 
after such notice, then the court in its discretion may grant the relief de- 
manded. 

Amendments. 

6. Upon application by any petitioner or party, amendments may be allowed 
by the court, in its discretion, to any petition, answer, or other pleading in any 
proceeding before the Commission. 

Adjournment and Extension of Time. 

7. Adjournment and extension of time may be granted upon the application 
of parties in the discretion of the court. 

Stipulations. 

8. Parties to cases and proceedings before the court may, by stipulation, duly 
signed by them and filed with the secretary, agree upon the facts, or any por- 
tion of the facts, they deem to be involved in the controversy, which agreed 
statement shall be regarded and used as evidence. It is desirable that the 
facts be thus agreed upon whenever practicable. 

Hearings. 

9. Upon issue being joined by the service of answer, the court will assign 
a time and place for hearing the same, which will be at its office in Raleigh, 
N. C, at its regular session, unless otherwise ordered. Witnesses will be 
examined orally before the court, unless testimony be taken or facts agreed 
upon as otherwise provided in these rules. The petitioner or complainant must 
in all cases prove the existence of the facts alleged to constitute a violation 
of the act, unless the carrier complained of shall admit the same, or shall fail 
to answer the complaint. Facts alleged in the answer must also be proved by 
the carrier, unless admitted by the petitioner. In cases of failure to answer, 
the court will take such proof of the charge as may be deemed reasonable and 
proper, and make such order thereon as the circumstances of the case appear 
to require. 

Witnesses and Depositions. 

10. Subpoenas requiring the attendance of witnesses will be issued by any 
member of the court in all cases and proceedings before it, and witnesses will 
be required to obey the subpoenas served upon them requiring their attendance 
or the production of any books, papers, tariffs, contracts, agreements or docu- 
ments relating to any matter under investigation or pending before the court. 
When a subpoena is desired for the production of books, papers or other docu- 



58 W. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

mentary evidence, special application must be made to the court therefor, 
specifying the documentary evidence desired. When a cause is at issue on 
petition and answer, each party may proceed at once to take depositions of 
witnesses in the manner provided by section 1357 of The Code of North Caro- 
lina, and transmit them to the secretary of the commission without making 
any application to or obtaining any authority from the court for that purpose. 

Proposed Findings of Fact. 

11. Upon the final submission of a case to the court either party may sub- 
mit proposed findings of fact for the consideration of the court, which findings 
must embrace only the material facts of the case supposed to be established by 
the testimony. 

Reports. 

12. Each railroad company doing business within the State of North Caro- 
lina shall file in the office of the court quarterly reports showing in detail 
statement of freight and passenger earnings, operating expenses, etc., on such 
forms as may be prescribed from time to time by the court. 

RULES GOVERNING TRANSPORTATION OF PASSENGERS. 

1. That all common carriers subject to the supervision of the Corporation 
Commission shall provide such means or appliances as may be necessary to 
secure the careful handling of and to prevent injury to any parcel of baggage 
to which a check may be affixed, as provided by law. That at all minor sta- 
tions, where no proper appliances are supplied and no regular depot hand is 
employed, the train hands shall be required to assist the baggage-master, and 
lift with care all baggage from the car doors. 

2. All railroad companies, in addition to the usual bell cord, shall place a 
safety cord in each coach of the regular passenger trains, running through the 
entire length of the same. 

3. It shall be the duty of the Pullman Car Company, at all stations, on the 
stopping of trains, to have the doors of their cars open for the reception of 
passengers and require the porter to have a step ready for the convenience 
of passengers desiring to enter. 

4. It shall be the duty of every railway company operating a railroad in 
this State to place a bulletin board in a conspicuous place at each of its ticket 
offices, upon which shall be bulletined the time that each train, upon which 
passengers are hauled, is due to arrive and depart under its published sched- 
ule. It shall also be the duty of each railway company, at each telegraph 
station upon its line, thirty (30) minutes before the time that its said trains 
are due to arrive at such station, to bulletin the fact upon said board as to 
whether said train is on time or not, and if behind schedule time, to state, as 
nearly as can be approximated, the time it is behind; and, whenever there is 
any indefinite delay of any passenger train, it shall be the duty of the rail- 
road company to cause to be bulletined at all of such stations the cause of 
such delay, and the probable continuation thereof, and the passengers aboard 
such train shall also be informed of the probable delay ; it shall also be the 
duty of the railroad company to cause its bulletins of all delayed trains to be 
corrected from time to time as the entries thereon can be ascertained by them 
to be incorrect. (Circular No. 79). 



RULES OF PRACTICE, 59 

RULES GOVERNING THE TRANSPORTATION OF FREIGHT. 

1. All connecting railroads, which are under the management and control, by 
lease, ownership or otherwise, of one and the same company, shall, for pur- 
poses of transportation, in applying this tariff, be considered as constituting 
but one and the same road, and the rates shall be computed as upon parts of 
one and the same road, unless otherwise specified. 

Distances. 

2. Since a separate rate cannot be conveniently given for every possible dis- 
tance, the law authorizes the Commission "to ascertain what shall be the limits 
of longer and shorter distances." Five (5) miles has, accordingly, been fixed 
as the limit for a change of freight rates for all distances less than one 
hundred miles; and ten (10) miles for all distances over one hundred miles. 
The commissioners reserve the right, however, to correct the charge in extreme 
cases which work hardship, although the same may not violate the letter of 
our rules. 

3. For all distances over five (5) miles and under one hundred (100) miles, 
the following rule will apply: When the mileage does not end in or 5 the 
nearest mileage so ending shall govern the rate. Illustration : For a distance 
of twenty-seven miles charge for twenty-five miles, for a distance of twenty- 
eight miles charge for thirty miles. 

4. When freight is transported any distance greater than one hundred miles, 
if the mileage does not end in 0, then next ten (10) miles group above shall 
govern the rate. Illustration: For one hundred and twenty-one miles charge 
for one hundred and thirty. 

5. For distance under twenty miles or over two hundred and fifty miles, a 
reduction of rates may be made without making a change at all stations short 
of two hundred and fifty miles : Provided, however, that when any railroad 
shall make a reduction of rates for distances over two hundred and fifty miles, 
the same shall apply to similar distances on all the roads controlled by the 
same company, and in no case shall more be charged for a less than a greater 
distance. 

Regulations Concerning Freight Rates. 

6. The freight rates prescribed by the Commission are maximum rates, which 
shall not be transcended by the railroads. They may carry, however, at less 
than the prescribed rates : Provided, that if they carry for less for one person, 
they shall for the like service carry for the same lessened rate for all persons 
except as mentioned hereafter ; and if they adopt less freight rates from one 
station, they shall make a reduction of the same per cent, at all stations along 
the line of the road, so as to make no unjust discrimination as against any 
person or locality. But when there are between any two points in this State 
two or more competing roads not under the same management or in the same 
system, then the longer line or lines, in order to give said points the benefit of 
competition, may reduce the rates between said two points below the standard 
tariff, without making a corresponding reduction at all stations along the 
lines of said roads : Provided, said reduction shall not make the rates less 
than the standard tariff rates for the shortest line between said points : Pro- 
vided further, that before taking effect the proposed change of rates shall be

submitted to and approved by the Commission. When any special rate is made 
it shall be submitted to the Commission for approval, and such special rates 
shall not be withdrawn without thirty days' notice to the Commission. 

7. The rates charged for freight service by regular passenger trains may be 
one and a half times that for first-class freight by ordinary freight trains. 

8. No railroad company shall, by reason of any contract with any express 
or other company, decline or refuse to act as a common carrier, to transport 
any article proper for transportation by the train for which it is offered. 

9. Minimum charge for single shipments. See Circular No. 30. 

10. No railroad company doing business in this State shall permit a blockade 
of any class of freight on account of any arrangement existing between it and 
other railroad companies as to the transportation of freight according to per- 
centage or otherwise. 

11. There shall be no secret reduction of rates, nor shall any bonus be given, 
or any rebate paid to any person, but the rates shall be uniform to all, and 
public. 

12. The rates specified for ores, sand, clay, rough stone, common brick, bone, 
lumber, shingles, laths, staves, empty barrels, wood, straw, shucks, hay, fod- 
der, corn in ear, tan bark, turpentine, rosin, tar, household goods, are maxi- 
mum rates, but the roads are left free to reduce them at discretion, and all 
such rates are exempt from the operation of Rule 6. All complaints as to such 
rates will, on presentation, be duly considered. 

13. When railroad companies are required to load or unload car-load ship- 
ments of classes L, M, N, O and P, or to load car-load shipments of naval 
stores, the actual cost of such service shall be paid by shippers. 

14. Extea Handling. — The charge for handling extra heavy articles may be 
as follows, viz. : 

Under 2,000 pounds, no charge for extra handling.

Navassa, Navassa lump, Peruvian soluble Pacific, nitrate cake, plaster of 
paris, potash — German salts of, muriate of, sulphate of — salt cake, lump and 
ground phosphate, soda — nitrate of and sulphate of — tank stuff, etc. 

For 5,000 lbs. and under 6,000 lbs $8 for extra handling. 

16. Vehicles designed for transportation at carrier's risk must be properly 
protected by the shipper with sufficient covering or packing from all liabilities 
to injury from fire, weather, chafing, or other injury. 

17. In no case shall the amount collected on L. C. L. shipments exceed the 
charge per car-load for the same class of goods. 

18. Railroad companies are not required to receive cotton or other merchan- 
dise and warehouse the same unless the articles offered are in good shipping 
condition, well prepared by the shipper with proper packing and intelligent, 
plain marking, and accompanied with orders for immediate shipping.

charged at the following estimated weights. This is not to interfere, however, 
with the duty of receiving agent to weigh, if possible, and correct to actual 
weight :

21. In cases in which the classification of any article is lowered by a per- 
centage, railroad companies which are allowed an increase on the standard 
tariff shall apply the increase allowed to the reduced classification; but in 
cases in which the classification of any article is raised by percentage, rail- 
road companies which are allowed an increase on the standard tariff shall not 
apply said increase to the already increased classification, but only to the 
standard tariff. 

22. When any article is too bulky to put in a box car, it shall be subject to 
special contract. 

23. A ton of all articles is 2,000 pounds. A car-load is 20,000 pounds unless

P. M. 



62 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

25. Railroad companies whose lines do not exceed ten miles in length may 
charge from any point on their road the rates prescribed for ten miles. 

26. On all shipments of freights not governed by Rule 1, originating and ter- 
minating in this State, which shall pass over the whole or portions of two or 
more roads not under the same control, the maximum rates charged on such 
shipments shall not be greater than the sum of the local rates on such freights 
less ten (10) per cent., for the distance hauled over each road. The total 
rate thus ascertained on such freights, from the point of shipment to the point 
of destination, shall be divided in such proportions between the roads over 
which such freights pass so as to give to each road interested in the shipment 
its local rate, less ten (10) per cent., for the distance such shipment is hauled. 
Nothing in this rule shall be construed to prevent the total of any joint rate 
made under this rule from being divided in such proportions between the roads 
interested in the same as they may agree upon, but a failure to so agree 
between the roads interested shall in no way affect the total joint rate to be 
charged and collected on, or work delay in the transportation of such freights, 
or be a subject of appeal to the Commission by the roads at interest. 

27. When railroad rates are affected by water competition the railroads may 
reduce their rates between points so affected without being required to reduce 
intermediate rates : Provided, however, that if complaint is made that such 
competition rates unjustly discriminate against other places or persons the 
commissioners will investigate and rule in each. case. 

28. No common carrier shall, for any cause, subject any article of freight to 
unreasonable delay in receiving, delivering or forwarding the same to its des- 
tination. 

29. When a shipment is offered at a point where there are two routes over 
connecting lines to destination it shall be the duty of the railroad company 
making shipment to forward same by the shortest route, unless the rate 
charged over the longer route does not exceed that of the shorter, or unless 
otherwise ordered by the shipper. 

30. A charge of no more than two dollars per car will be allowed for switch- 
ing or transferring a car from any point on any road to any connecting road or 
warehouse within a space of one mile from starting point; over one and not 
more than two miles, three dollars ; over two miles and not* over three miles, 
four dollars, without regard to weight or contents. 

31. When in the transfer of a car between said points it is necessary to pass 
over the line of any intermediate road or roads, the maximum charge of two, 
three or four dollars, as the case may be, shall be equitably divided between 
the roads at interest. 

32. When a charge is made for the transfer of loaded cars between said 
points no additional charge shall be made for the delivery or return of the 
empty cars. 

33. All specials less than our standard rates heretofore granted by carriers 
within the jurisdiction of the Commission, and which do not conflict with the 
law preventing unjust discrimination, until further orders, will be enforced. 

Posting Tariffs. 

34. Each railroad company doing business within the State of North Carolina 
shall post, and keep posted, at each of its respective stations in a conspicuous 
place a copy of the schedules of freight and passenger rates prescribed for said

road by the Commission, together with a copy of the commissioners' classifica- 
tion, and a table of distances between stations, giving name of each station. 
And when any change in said schedule of rates or classification is made, either 
by the Commission or by any railroad company, a copy of said change shall 
be immediately furnished the office of the commissioners and shall also be 
posted in the same manner as the above. 

35. The rates prescribed by the Commission shall (except in cases specified) 
apply in either direction. 

36. An allowance of 500 pounds per car will be made for weight of stand- 
ards, strips and supports of car-load shipments of lumber loaded on flat or 
gondola cars, but in no case must less than the minimum car-load weight 
specified in tariffs be charged for on each car. In computing freight charges 
under this rule, agents will deduct 500 pounds from the gross weight of each 
car-load, then subtract the tare weight (the weight of car), and extend freight 
charges on basis of remainder, which is the net weight, subject to the minimum 
car-load weight specified in tariffs. (Circular No. 58). 

37. Shipments of freight, except articles classified first-class or higher, which 
are not delivered at destination, shall be returned between points in this 
State at one-half the rates applying to the reverse direction : Provided, that 
the full amount of freight charges in both directions shall have been paid or 
guaranteed by owners : and, Provided further, that such return is made within 
ninety days of arrival at destination. Billing for the return shipment must 
show proper reference to the original billing. The foregoing shall not apply 
on machinery, agricultural implements, or other articles returned for repairs : 
Provided, however, that the above rule shall not operate to reduce the mini- 
mum charge on single shipments. (Circular No. 59). 

EXPLANATORY NOTES. 

In the "Commissioners' Standard Freight Tariff," under the class opposite 
to the distance, if it ends in (and if not, then opposite the next greater dis- 
tance), will be found the rate required. 

Example: To find the rate for 247 miles on a box of clothing weighing 100 
pounds, opposite the word "clothing" in the classification is seen its class, 1 ; 
in the freight tariff, under Class 1, opposite the next greater distance, 250 
miles, is seen the rate, 65 cents ; in the column "miles," 5 signifies five miles or 
under ; 20, twenty miles or over fifteen, and so on.

RULES FOR COMPUTING FRACTIONS. 

When any rate in any class in the Standard Tariff is raised or lowered by a 
per cent., the following rules must be observed : 

First. — If the rate thus raised or lowered is in either of classes C, D, F, J, 
or K, the fraction of a half cent must be retained, as tbe following examples 
will indicate: 

Ex. 1.— Standard rate 6.5 

25 per cent, added 1.6 

Total ; 8.1 

From which deduct fraction, leaving desired rate of 8 cents. 

Ex. 2.— Standard rate 9.5 

20 per cent, added 1.9 

Total 11.4 

Substituting 5 for the fraction, tbe desired rate is 11.5 cents. 

Ex. 3.— Standard rate ■ 8. 

20 per cent, added 1.6 

Total 9.6 

Substituting 5 for the fraction, the desired rate is 9.5 cents. 

Ex. 4. — Standard rate 5.5 

25 per cent, added 1.3 

Total 6.8 

Adding a unit instead of a fraction, the desired rate is 7 cents. 

Second. — If the rate thus raised or lowered be in any other class than those 
already mentioned, omit fraction of less than half a cent and estimate half a 
cent or more as one cent, thus : 

Ex. 1. — Standard rate 17. 

20 per cent, added -. 3.4 

Total 20.4 

Deducting the fraction, the desired rate is 20 cents. 

Ex. 2.— Standard rate 18. 

20 per cent, added 3.6 

Total 21.6 

Estimating the fraction as a unit, the desired rate is 22 cents. 

Third. — In making reductions, observe the same manner of placing figures 
before deducting the percentage. 

Narrow-gauge railroads, in fixing rates on all freights where a rate per car- 
load is given, will count 15,000 pounds for a car-load, and estimate their charge 
pro rata with rate allowed on standard gauge. 



RULES OF PRACTICE. bo 

RULES GOVERNING ERECTION AND LOCATION OF DEPOTS. 

First. — From and after Wednesday, the 26th day of April, 1899, no change of 
freight or passenger depots or flag stations from their present location, nor the 
suspension of the sale of tickets, or the receiving or forwarding of freights 
from stations now in use for such purposes, will be permitted without the con- 
sent of this Commission published in accordance with law. 

Second. — Application for the location of depots and the construction of 
depot buildings must be filed in the North Carolina Corporation Commission 
office, with all information needed for a full and proper understanding of all 
interests to be affected thereby. 



RULES AND REGULATIONS GOVERNING THE TRANSPORTATION OF 

LIVE STOCK. 

The weights given below are estimated and not actual, and are used simply 
to get the rating on live stock. To illustrate : One horse, mule or horned 
animal is estimated at the same rate as 2,000 pounds of any kind of second- 
class freight at carrier's risk and fourth-class at owner's risk. Therefore, the 
freight charges for fifty miles on one horse, mule or horned animal is the same 
as on 2,000 pounds of second-class freight, and would be, according to the 
standard tariff, carrier's risk, 28 cents per 100 pounds, or $5.00, and at owner's 
risk, 20 cents per 100 pounds, or $4.00. 



Each. 

One horse, mule or horned animal 2,000 lbs. 

Two horses, mules or horned animals- 3,500 lbs. 
Each additional horse, mule or horned 

animal 1,000 lbs. 

Stallions, jacks and bulls 3,000 lbs. 

Yearling cattle 1,000 lbs. 

Calves and sheep 175 lbs. 



Calves and sheep, in lots of — or more 
Lambs

The rates on live stock 
maximum valuations: 



as given in this tariff are based on the following 






Horses and mules not over $120.00 each. 

Horned cattle not over 50.00 each. 

Stallions, jacks and bulls not over. 150.00 each. 

Fat hogs and fat calves not over 15.00 each. 

Lambs, stock hogs, stock calves, not over 5.00 each. 

Race horses, stallions, jacks, bulls and other high-priced animals, when ship- 
pers are not willing to have the same transported at above valuations, will be 
taken only at the following rates on valuation given : 

Value from $150.00 to $400.00 add to regular rate 30 per cent. 
Value from $400.00 to $600.00 add to regular rate 40 per cent. 
Value from $600.00 to $800.00 add to regular rate 60 per cent. 
Value from $800.00 to $1,000.00 add to regular rate 100 per cent. 
Over $1,000 subject to special rate by contract. 

Live stock will be taken at the released or owner's risk rate only when con- 
tract is executed by shipper and station agent. 



66 IS". C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

Mixed shipment of cattle, hogs, lambs, etc., will he taken in car-loads at car- 
load rates for cattle, but carrier will be released from damage to animals 
caused by their own acts, or to each other, and from escape, if not haltered, 
suffocation, exhaustion from heat or cold. 

Sucking calves accompanying cows will be charged for at rate for single 
calves. 

Sucking colts accompanying mares will be charged for at double the rate of 
single calves. 

The word "calves" used in these rules and regulations applies only to calves 
under nine months old, and the word "yearling cattle" to cattle over nine 
months and under eighteen months old. 

Pigs, hogs, calves, etc., boxed, crated, or in portable pens, taken at actual 
weight, carrier's risk, first-class ; owner's risk, second-class. 

In no case shall the charge for less than a car-load of live stock exceed the 
charge for a car-load. 

Shippers will be expected to feed, water and care for their stock at their 
own expense. When food is furnished by carrier, a charge will be made for 
the same and collected from consignee. 

One, two or three cars of live stock will entitle the owner or his agent to be 
carried free to point of destination of consignment, on the train with the stock, 
to care for the same. Four to seven cars inclusive, belonging to one owner, 
two men in charge, and eight cars or more belonging to one owner, three men 
in charge, which number is the maximum number of attendants that will be 
carried free for one shipment. 

Return transportation not given to owners, agents or attendants.

Storage and demurrage may be assessed by railroad companies on all freight 
received for delivery in car-load lots or in less than car-load lots if not re- 
moved in conformity with the following rules and regulations : 

RULE I. 

No storage or demurrage charges, however, shall in any case be allowed 
unless notice of the arrival of goods has been given to the owner or consignee 
thereof by the railroad company, and it shall be the duty of such railroad 
company to give prompt notice to consignee of the arrival of goods, together 
with the contents, weight and amount of freight charges due thereon as shown 
by way-bill, and when goods or freight of any kind in car-load consignments,

shall be given by delivering same in writing in person, or by leaving same at 
consignee's place of business or by depositing it in the post-office. 

RULE II. 

For storage of package freights and all freight less than car-load, unloaded 
in depot or warehouse, which is not removed by the owner thereof from the 
custody of the railroad company within forty-eight hours (not including Sun- 
days and legal holidays), a charge of storage for each day or fraction of a day 
that such consignment may remain in the custody of the carrier of one cent 
per hundred pounds per day, with minimum charge of five cents for any one 
package or lot for any one consignee, may be made ; but not more than one dol- 
lar per day for any one consignment not in excess of a car-load. 

RULE IIT. 

All car-load freight taking track delivery and such as is to be unloaded by 
consignee, which is not unloaded from cars containing same within forty- 
eight hours (not including Sundays and legal holidays) after the car or cars 
are placed accessible for unloading, may be subject to a charge of one dollar 
per car for each day or fraction of a day that said car or cars remain loaded :

RULE IV. 

When consignors ship goods consigned to themselves or order, it shall be the 
duty of the railroad company to give legal notice to such consignees or persons 
to whom shipping directions order delivery- This notice may be addressed by 
mail to the consignee at point of delivery, and demurrage will begin as in 
other cases of notice by mail ; and the mailing of such notice shall be sufficient 
notice in such cases, whether the consignee actually received the same or not. 

RULE V. 

The time allowed for removing freight before storage or demurrage charges 
apply will be computed from 7 o'clock A. M. of the day following date of notice 
(Sundays and legal holidays excepted). 

RULE VI. 

A consignee living more than five (5) miles from the depot, and whose 
freight is destined to his residence or place of business so located, shall not be 
subject to storage or demurrage charges allowed in the above rules until a 
sufficient time has elapsed after notice for said consignee to remove said goods 
by the exercise of due diligence : Provided, that in the delivery of car-load 
freight railroads will not be required in any case to hold freight free of de- 
murrage for a longer period than five (5) days after notice, except as other- 
wise provided in Rule II. 

RULE VII. 

Where, upon the request of an intending shipper, the railroad company 
places a car or ears at a reasonably accessible point on its team tracks or on a 
private track designated by the shipper, free loading time shall expire forty- 
eight hours (not including Sundays or legal holidays) from the time such car 
or cars are so placed, and thereafter a demurrage charge of not more than one 
dollar per car per day or fraction of a day may be assessed and collected on 
all such cars as have not been tendered to the railroad company with shipping 
instructions. 

RULE VIII. 

When any railroad company fails to deliver freights at the depot or to place 
loaded cars at an accessible place for unloading within forty-eight hours (not 
including Sundays and legal holidays), computed from 7 o'clock A. M. the day 
after the arrival of same, the shipper or consignee shall be paid one dollar 
per day for each day or fraction of a day said delivery is so delayed : Pro- 
vided, the railroad company may require the payment of freight before de- 
livery.

RULES OF PRACTICE. 69 



RULE XI. 



Whenever the weather during the period of free time is so severe, inclement 
or rainy that it is impracticable to secure means of removal or loading of 
freight, or where from the nature of the goods removal or -loading would cause 
injury or damage, such time shall be added to the free period, and no demur- 
rage charges shall be allowed for such additional time. This rule applies to 
the state of the weather during business hours. 

RULE XII. 

The Commission reserves the right to hear and grant application to suspend 
the operation of these rules upon complaint of abuse, or whenever justice 
shall demand this course. 

RULE XIII.

switching, the company so receiving and delivering may charge $1.50 addi- 
tional. 

After car is placed for loading, the shipper shall load same within twenty- 
four hours therefrom, and consignee shall, when car is placed for unloading,

ply in ascertaining the weight 
on beer in car-loads containing 
ice or other packing : 

The car of beer shall be 
weighed on track scales at 
originating point, and, when 
iced in transit, also at destina- 
tion. The weight of the beer 
shall be ascertained by taking 
a count of the packages con- 
tained in the car, computed at 
the estimated weights per 
package as shown in the clas- 
sification, when the difference 
between the estimated weight 
and the scale weight does 
not amount to 4,000 pounds. 
Should the difference between 
the scale weight and the esti- 
mated weight be more than 
4,000 pounds, said difference 
shall be charged for at the 
rate applicable on beer. 

If, on weighing the car at 
destination, there is found to 
be a greater difference than 
4,000 pounds (allowed for ice 
and packing) between the 
scale weight at destination 
and the billed weight, said 
difference shall be charged for 
at the rate applicable on beer.

Rules governing transportation of high explosives: 



High explosives, such as atlas, hercules, giant, 
dittmar, commercial eetna, hecla and other nitro- 
glycerine powders; dynamite, nitro-glycerine, gly- 
noin oil, nitroleum, blasting oil, nitrated oil or pow- 
der, mixed with any such oil or fibre, saturated with 
any such articles or substances, will be received for 
transportation only at steamship or railroad compa- 
nies' option only under the following conditions: 

First.— Shipments to be packed in strong boxes, 
not too large to be readily handled by one person, 
and each package to be plainly marked "Explosive," 
"Dangerous," on top and on one side or on one end. 

Second.— It is understood that in these articles 
the nitro-glycerine is thoroughly absorbed in char- 
coal, sawdust, infusorial earth, wood fibre, carbonate 
of magnesia, or other similar substances, and that 
the amount of the nitro-glycerine is such that the 
temperature on the hottest summer day will not 
occasion any leakage; also that the powder formed 
by that absorbent material and the nitro-glycerine is 
always made up into cartridges and never put into 
the boxes in bulk. Should any package show out- 
ward signs of any oily stain, or other indication that 
absorption is not perfect, or that the amount of 
nitro-glycerine is greater than the absorbent can 
carry, the packages must be refused in every in- 
stance and must not be allowed to remain on the 
property of the carrier. 

Third. — Nitrate or other explosive preparations 
not in accordance with the above specifications (ex- 



cept ordinary black powder) will in no case be re- 
ceived for shipment. 

Fourth. — Shipments must be so loaded that 
boxes will lie bottom side down, it being understood 
that the cartridges are so placed in the boxes that 
they will lie on their sides and never on their ends 
when so loaded. The boxes must be so placed in car 
that they cannot fall to the floor under any circum- 
stances. 

Fifth.— Shipments of common black powder 
may be received if packed in good, substantial iron 
or wooden kegs, packages not to exceed one hundred 
and fifty pounds in weight, unless for export, when 
larger packages will be received. 

Sixth.— In no case will percussion caps, explod- 
ers, safety squibs, f ulminators, friction matches or 
any other articles of like nature be loaded in same 
car with any of the above explosives. There cannot 
be too great care exercised in this matter. 

Seventh. — Safety-fuse will be received for ship- 
ment at any time it is offered and the restrictions in 
regard to shipping powder do not apply to it. 

Eighth.— As special powder cars are not in 
general service among roads, agents must know 
that none of the above explosive substances are 
loaded at their stations in old cars, having loose 
boards or cracks in the roof or sides. Cars for car- 
rying these explosives must be first class in every 
respect; must be tight everywhere, and must have 
doors that can be closely shut, leaving no cracks for

Rules governing transportation of high explosives— Continued. 



sparks to get in. When explosives are carried in 
full car-loads, the doors must be stripped, except 
when the cars are equipped with the new Wagner car 
doors, which must never be stripped. Agents must 
refuse to receive from connecting lines cars loaded 
with explosives, unless the requirements of this 
section have been complied with. 

Ninth. — Every car containing any of the above 
explosive substances, either full car-load or small 
package, must be plainly marked on both sides, 
"Powder— Handle Carefully," so that those having 
charge of it will not do anything ignorantly to in- 
cur danger. This should be done by the shipper of 
full car-loads, and by the ( agent when packages are 
loaded in car at his station. Cars containing explo- 
sives received from connecting lines, if not marked 
when received, must be marked by the agent at the 
connecting point. Agents will be held strictly re- 



sponsible that no car containing explosives leaves 
their stations until it is properly marked. 

Tenth.— Agents must notify conductors when- 
ever a car containing explosives is to be taken from 
their stations ; and conductors must not take from 
any station or siding any car known to contain ex- 
plosive substances unless Rules Eight and Nine have 
been complied with, and such cars must be placed 
in their train as near the middle as possible. 

Eleventh.— Agents should notify all the ship- 
pers in their neighborhood of these requirements 

Twelfth.— The law provides heavy penalties, 
both to shippers and common carriers, for a viola- 
tion of these rules, and agents and shippers should 
be careful to see that such shipments are put up, 
marked and forwarded only under their proper 
names and in accordance with these provisions.

Household goods and old furniture, subject to the following rules, viz. : 



1 — Each article must be plainly marked or tagged. 

2 — Bundles of bedding, trunks of clothing, house- 
hold goods or similar articles (not furniture) will 
not be received for transportation unless packed. 
Chests of similar articles must be strapped or 
securely nailed. This does not apply to house- 
hold goods, C. L. 

3— Any agent receiving this class of freight con- 
trary to the foregoing rules will be charged with 
such expense (for boxing or transportation) as 
may be necessary to forward goods to destina- 
tion without delay. 

4 — Bills of lading and way-bills must designate 
character and number of packages. 

5— These instructions apply to old and second-hand 
furniture, clothing, bedding, etc.; not to new 
articles. 



6 — Shipments designated to points beyond the South- 
eastern Freight Association territory must be 
released and prepaid, and the original release 
attached to way-bill accompanying the ship- 
ment. 

7 — In all cases where limitation of value is ex- 
pressed in the classification, it must be written 
out or stamped in full upon bills of lading, and 
shippers must be required to accept in writing 
the limitations expressed. Agents must re- 
spect this rule and require acceptance by the 
shipper. 

8— The classification of "household goods and old 
furniture" will not cover shipments of second- 
hand furniture, shipped by furniture dealers, or 
for sale. Such shipments must be charged for 
at regular furniture rates.

One man to pass free with one or two cars ; two 
men to pass free with three or four cars ; three men 
to pass free with five to seven cars ; four men to 
pass free with eight or more cars ; which last is the

Oil, coal, or its products (shipper's option), governed by the following rules, viz.: 



Oil, crude and fuel, crude naphtha, crude and re- 
fined petroleum, products of petroleum, such as 
lubricating oils, benzine, naphtha, gasoline and par- 
affine, when in barrels or cases, minimum C. L. 
weight 24,000 pounds. When in tank cars, minimum 
C. L. weight will be the full capacity of the tank, 
the contents of the tank to be computed at six and 
four-tenths pounds per gallon, subject to a minimum 
weight of 20,000 pounds. When in barrels or half- 
barrels, C. L. or L. C. L., weight will be computed at 
400 pounds per barrel, and 235 pounds per half -barrel. 
When in square cans, completely cased, each can 
containing ten gallons, C. L. or L. C. L., at 80 pounds 
per case. 

Mixed car-loads of oil in barrels or cases will be 
taken authorized C. L. rates based on the foregoing 
weights. When less than aforesaid minimum car- 
loads are shipped, L. C. L. rates will be charged. In 



no case, however, will less than a car-load from one 
consignor to one consignee and destination on same 
day be charged more than for a full car-load. 

Transportation companies do not furnish tank 
cars. When they are furnished by shippers, trans- 
portation companies will pay three-fourths cent 
per mile run each way, and will return the empty 
tank to point of shipment without charge. 

Shipments of above articles at rates authorized 
are entirely at owner's risk of leakage and loss or 
damage by fire. 

Petroleum and its products in tank cars will be 
delivered only when consigned to parties at points 
at which they have proper unloading and storage 
facilities ; and when shipments in tank cars are con- 
signed to parties who have not such facilities the 
shipments will be returned to the shippers at their 
risk and expense.

N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 



Cotton-seed oil, in barrels, governed by the following rules, viz. 






First.— Inasmuch as the gross tare and net weight 
of each barrel is plainly marked on the head of the 
barrel, when shipments are loaded at the mills, 
agents at shipping points will require shippers to 
load marked head up, ascertaining the gross weight 
from each barrel and billing accordingly. 

Second. — In cases where shippers fail to so load, 
agents will carefully weigh on track scales and bill 
at weight so ascertained. 

Third. — When shipments are hauled to depots, 
the gross weight must be ascertained from each 
barrel. 



Fourth. — In cases where billing fails to show 
shipments to have been weighed at point of origin 
or in transit, receiving lines must in all cases bill at 
weights ascertained in accordance with Rules 1 and 2. 

If there are no track scales at the junction points, 
weights must be ascertained at destination. By 
destination is meant the point where final delivery 
is effected or delivery is made to connecting lines at 
the gateways of this Association. 

Fifth.— The minimum C. L. weight of cotton-seed 
oil in barrels will be 24,000 pounds.

EXPRESS FREIGHT CLASSIFICATION. 



RULES 



1. Graduated rates apply to matter weighing- 
less than 100 pounds when the rate is under $2.00 
(I) per 100 pounds and to matter weighing less 
than 50 pounds when the rate is $2.00 (I) or more 
per 100 pounds. Example: — Between points 
where the rate per 100 pounds is $1.75 (H) a box 
weighing 73 pounds must be charged for at the 
graduated rate under $1.75 (H), which makes the 
proper charges on "over 70 to 75 pounds" $1.50. 

Packages exceeding 7 pounds carried by more 
than one company, graduated for each company 
unless otherwise instructed. 

2. When the rate between any two points is 
not given in the graduated rates, use the next 
higher rate for making price, but do not charge 
more than for 100 pounds at the actual rate. 
Example: — The correct charge for 75 pounds at 
80 cents per 100 pounds would be 80 cents, and not 
$1.00, according to the graduate on 75 pounds at 
$1.00. If the rate exceeds $20.00 (CC) per 100 
pounds, charge pound rates, but never less than 
$20.00 (CC) graduated rate for same weight. 

3. When the rate per 100 pounds is $2.00 (I) or 
more, charge pound rates for 50 pounds or over; 
but the charge for less than 50 pounds in weight 
must not be greater than the charge for 50 pounds. 
If less than $2.00 (I) per 100 pounds, charge 
graduated rates. 

Two or more packages weighing each 20 pounds 
or over forwarded by one shipper at the same time 
to one consignee may be charged for on the aggre- 
gate weight as above. 

Packages weighing less than 20 pounds each, 
shipped as in the foregoing section, may be aggre- 
gated, provided they are estimated and charged 
for as weighing 20 pounds each Actual weight 
only must be entered on the way-bill. 

If articles of different classes are aggregated, 
the charge must be made at the rate applying to 
the highest class. 

To properly carry out the above provisions in 
regard to aggregating the weights and charges on 
two or more packages sent by one shipper to one 
consignee, receiving clerks and wagon men are 
hereby instructed, in all cases when two or 
more articles are shipped at the same time to one 
address, to mark distinctly on each and every 
article the number receipted for and the hour of 
the day, thus: 3 packages 11 a. m.; 2 packages 
4 p. m. 

All matter must be charged for at actual gross 
weight at the time of shipment, unless otherwise 
specially provided for. Estimated weights on 
shipments usually made with ice are only to be 
applied when ice is used. When no ice is used 
gross weights must be charged. 

4. Extra Rate Charges.— On matter subject 
to extra rate, as one and one-half or double rate, 
find graduated rate according to tariff, and then add 
one-half, or double it, as required. Example: — 
If a package weighs 25 pounds, rated at double 
rate, and the rate to destination is $1.00 (E) per 
100 pounds, the charge for 20 to 25 pounds is 50 
cents; double this, $1.00 is the proper amount. 

5. Valuation Charges.— When the value of 
any merchandise shipment (C. O. D. or otherwise) 
exceeds $5.00, the following additional charge 
must be made on value (Charge for value whether 
insured or not) : 

When merchandise rate is $1.00 or less per 100 
pounds, 5 cents for each $100 value or fraction 
thereof. 



When merchandise rate exceeds $1.00 and not 
more than $3.00 per 100 pounds, 10 cents for each 
$100 value or fraction thereof. 

When merchandise rate exceeds $3.00 and not 
more than $8.00 per 100 pounds, 15 cents for each 
$100 value or fraction thereof. 

When merchandise rate exeeds $8.00 per 100 
pounds, 20 cents for each $100 value or fraction 
thereof. 

These rates must not be applied to shipments of 
money or bonds, being intended to apply only to 
packages or shipments of merchandise, jewelry 
and valuable papers. 

The charges for valuation above given are to be 
made on the through rate, whether carried by one 
or more companies, and in the latter case are to be 
divided between the companies carrying on the 
same basis as said companies divide the trans- 
portation charges, except as noted below. 

7. C. O. D. Matter. -The letters "C. O. D." 
and amount to be collected must be plainly marked 
upon each article with which a bill is sent to be 
collected on delivery, and a similar entry made 
upon the way-bill. If shipper requires collection 
of charges for return of money, the C. O. D. enve- 
lope and package must be plainly marked "C. O. 
D. $ and return charges" and so way-billed. 

Allow examination of C. O. D. matter only upon 
written authority of shipper endorsed by agent at 
shipping point. When such authority is endorsed 
on the transfer envelope, it shall also be accepted. 
Such endorsement not to be made until shippers 
sign an agreement releasing the company from all 
loss incident to such examination. 

All orders to deliver C O. D. goods without col- 
lecting C. O. D. must have the approval of the 
agent of the company at the shipping point. 

When C. O. D. matter is, by order of shipper, 
through the agent at point of shipment, delivered 
without collecting, return the C. O. D. bill and 
envelope way-bill free. 

If C. O. D. matter is refused, or cannot be de- 
livered, the shipper must be immediately notified, 
and if not disposed of within thirty days after 
such notice, it may be returned subject to charges 
both ways. 

C. O. D. matter, and paid C. O. D.'s returned to 
shipper, must take same route and pass through 
the hands of same company or companies as when 
originally forwarded. 

C. O. D.'s and Collections Between the 
United States and Other Countries.— Ship- 
pers desiring currency or coin different from that 
current where collection is to be made must write 
their instructions plainly on the C. O. D. bill or 
collection. 

8. Give a receipt of the prescribed form for all 
matter received without regard to the distance to 
be carried. Always ask shippers to declare the 
value, and when given insert it in the receipt, 
mark it on the package and enter amount on the 
way-bill. If shippers refuse to state value, write 
or stamp on the receipt "value asked and not 
given." When received at owner's risk, write or 
stamp on face of receipt "at owner's risk." 

Receive stove and other fragile castings, fire- 
brick and emery wheels at owner's risk only 

9. Require prepayment or guarantee of charges 
for, and so way-bill, old valises, hand-bags, bun- 
dles of blankets, seeds, cuttings, shrubbery, 
plants, samples, medicines, and for all matter 
evidently not worth charges. 



EXPRESS FREIGHT CLASSIFICATION. 



When matter is way-billed or transferred guar- 
anteed, the guarantee covers the charges of all 
companies carrying to original point of desti- 
nation, and is limited to 60 days. Therefore, 
agents receiving matter way-billed "guaranteed " 
must report to billing office within 60 days of date 
of way-bill any failure to collect charges on same. 

10. Gunpowder, dynamite, kerosene, benzine, 
naphtha, gasoline, matches and all other explosive 



or dangerous inflammable oils, acids or materials 
must not be received for transportation. 

Men, women or children must not be received 
for transportation. 

11. Fancy poultry, pet stock or dogs that have 
paid double merchandise rates to fairs and exhibi- 
tions, may be returned free if accompanied by a 
certificate from the secretary that they are being 
returned to the original owner.

212 IS". C. COEPOEATION COMMISSION. 

IN RE MATTER OF RATES APPLICABLE TO NORFOLK AND SOUTHERN 

RAILWAY COMPANY. 

This matter coming on to be heard upon petition and exhibits and argument 
of counsel, it appears to the Corporation Commission that the Atlantic and 
North Carolina Railroad Company, a. railroad running from Goldsboro to More- 
head City, and the Norfolk and Southern Railroad Company, a railroad run- 
ning from Edenton to the State line between North Carolina and Virginia, via 
Shawboro, should be required to put into effect the passenger-rate law enacted 
by the General Assembly of North Carolina in 1907. 

It further appears that the other railroads owned and operated by petitioner 
in North Carolina were either constructed within twelve months preceding 
January 1, 1907, or were at that time in course of construction. 

It is ordered that all of the railroads operated by the Norfolk and Southern 
Railway Company in North Carolina, excepting that of the Atlantic and North 
Carolina Railroad Company and the Norfolk and Southern Railroad Company 
from Edenton to the State line via Shawboro, and the railroad connecting 
Morehead City and Beaufort, shall be permitted to transport passengers twelve 
years of age and over at a rate not to exceed three cents a mile, and all pas- 
sengers over five and under twelve years of age at a rate not exceeding one- 
half of three cents per mile. 

It is further ordered that the petitioner be allowed to charge ten cents for 
transporting passengers from Morehead City to Beaufort, and vice versa, and 
that these rates be continued in effect for two years from July 1, 1907, or until 
further order of this Commission, as it appears to the Commission that these 
will be reasonable and just rates. Franklin McNeill,

216 1ST. C. COEPOKATION COMMISSION. 

To the Hon. Franklin McNeill, Samuel L. Rogers and E. C. Beddingfield, 
The North Carolina Corporation Commission. 
The petition of the Southern Railway Company, a corporation chartered 
under the laws of Virginia and doing business in North Carolina, respectfully 
showeth : 

(1) That it is necessary to condemn for its yard and terminal facilities, for 
due operation of its railroad, a small tract of land in the town of Spencer, 
claimed and occupied by G. W. Hoover, of the town Of Thomasville ; that before 
instituting proceedings for the condemnation of said land, your petitioner is 
required to obtain the approval of the Corporation Commission, pursuant to an 
act entitled "An act to permit railroad companies to acquire lands for double 
tracking," ratified the 5th day of March, 1907. 

(2) That said tract .of land which is proposed to be condemned is entirely 
vacant and unimproved, and is described as follows : Beginning at the north 
corner of the intersection of Depot Street and Lexington Avenue, in the town 
of Spencer, in the county of Rowan, and runs thence with Depot Street N. 27 
degrees W. 181 feet to a stake on alley; thence with alley N. 47 degrees 30 
minutes E. 50 feet to a stake, corner of lot No. 2 ; thence with the line of lot

(3) That said land which is proposed to be condemned is located within the 
limits of the boundary which has been surveyed by your petitioner for the 
location and enlargement of its yard and terminal facilities in said town of 
Spencer, and said land is adjacent to the passenger and freight depot of your 
petitioner in said town of Spencer. 

(4) That your petitioner has not been able to acquire title to said land, for 
the reason that your petitioner and said G. M. Hoover, the owner of said land, 
have not been able to agree upon the price to be paid for the same. 

(5) That upon the approval of the Corporation Commission of the condemna- 
tion of said land for the purposes aforesaid, your petitioner proposes to insti- 
tute proceedings in the Superior Court of Rowan County, as provided in chap-

IN THE MATTER OF THE NORFOLK AND WESTERN RAILWAY COM- 
PANY, ex parte— PETITION FOR EXEMPTION FROM THE OPERATION 
OF THE MAXIMUM PASSENGER RATE ACT OF MARCH 2, 1907. 

The petitioner, Norfolk and Western Railway Company, is the owner of two 
branch railroad lines, both of which are partly located in North Carolina, to- 
wit, the railroad branch line running from the city of Roanoke, Virginia, to the 
city of Winston- Salem, in North Carolina, a distance of 121.30 miles, of which 
75.65 miles is in the State of Virginia and 45.65 miles in the State of North 
Carolina, and also the branch line running from the city of Lynchburg, Vir- 
ginia, to the city of Durham, North Carolina, a distance of 118.91 miles, of 
which 74.74 miles is in the State of Virginia and 44.17 miles is in the State of 
North Carolina. 

The petitioner files with the Corporation Commission two separate petitions, 
asking the Commission for the reasons stated in the petitions to exempt the 
petitioner from the operation of the act entitled "An act prescribing the maxi- 
mum charges railroad companies may make for transporting passengers in 
North Carolina," ratified March 2, 1907, basing its petitions upon the fact that, 
taken separately, neither of these branch roads is of the length of sixty miles 
in North Carolina, and its passenger service on both roads is operated at a loss 
to the petitioner. 

The Board being of the opinion that, under a proper construction of said 
act of the General Assembly, the two branch roads being both owned and 
operated by the petitioner, the mileage of both in North Carolina should 
be added together, and when so added constitute more than sixty miles owned 
and operated by the petitioner in North Carolina, and on that account the 
Board is not authorized and empowered to grant the petitions of the petitioner, 
the petitions are both, therefore, refused and declined. 

And it is so ordered. Franklin McNeill, 

Chairman. 

To the foregoing action of the Corporation Commission the petitioner excepts 
and appeals. 



J. S. MANNING v. INTERSTATE TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH 

COMPANY. 

It was alleged in this proceeding that the defendant proposed to increase its 
rates, on and after July 1, 1907, from $2 to $2.50 a month for residence 'phones 
and from $3.50 to $4 a month for business 'phones, and that said increase of 
rates was unreasonable, excessive and extortionate, and prayed that the de- 
fendant be not allowed to raise the rates as proposed. 

Defendant answered and admitted that it had advertised and intended to 
raise the rates, as alleged, but denied that when so raised they would be un- 
reasonable, excessive and extortionate. 



218 W. C. COEPOEATIOIi!' COMMISSION. 

The case was heard on June 20, 1907, plaintiff appearing in person and de- 
fendant represented by F. L. Fuller, Esq., attorney. The evidence offered was 
taken down by a stenographer and typewritten and filed in this office. 

This evidence is to the effect that the defendant company was incorporated 
under the laws of North Carolina and organized in 1899 ; L. A. Carr, president ; 
W. W. Shaw, general manager and secretary; J. S. Carr, L. A. Carr, George 
W. Watts, W. W. Shaw, S. T. Morgan, Mrs. Anna E. Watts, R. L. Carr and 
Joe L. Conrad, stockholders. The capital stock was $100,000, half of which 
was paid in money and the balance in property. The company operated plants 
at several places in the State and at some places outside of the State. The 
plants outside of the State were first disposed of. The plants at Wilmington, 
Goldsboro and Winston were disposed of in 1903, and the plant at Raleigh on 
January 1, 1907. 

The annual reports of the defendant to the Corporation Commission showed 
the earnings of defendant from all of the plants owned by it. The report 
showed earnings from operation for 1904, $7,563.91; 1905, $8,527.28; 1906, 
$5,950.61. Of the earnings for 1904, $3,825.10 was insolvent and never col- 
lected; for 1905, $1,676.95, and for 1906, $1,017.24. No dividend or return in 
any form has ever been paid to the stockholders. All of the money received by 
the company, other than that paid for expenses, has been spent for the benefit 
of the company and gone into the property of the company. 

The company has assets of the book value of $129,465.66, and these consist 
of the telephone plant at Durham, $83,817.05 ; treasury stock, $8,000 ; stock in 
Capital City Telephone Company, $35,000, etc. The capital stock of the com- 
pany has no market value. 

The liabilities of the company are: Capital stock, $100,000; bills payable, 
borrowed money, $32,500, and other accounts, $159.22. The liability for bor- 
rowed money has been standing for about four years. The assessed value of 
the company for the year 1906 for taxation was $30,000. There has been ex- 
pended in the plant at Durham $83,817.05, and this does not include repairs 
and replacements and other items which were paid out of the earnings of the 
company. The only estimate of the present cost of replacing the plant at Dur- 
ham was $135,000. There are at present about 900 subscribers to the exchange 
at Durham. The gross revenue at the present rates would amount to about 
$24,000 per annum. 

The evidence tends to show that, after deducting actual expense of operation 
and making a reasonable allowance for the deterioration of the plant, very 
little, if anything, would be left for the payment of dividends upon the stock. 

Upon the evidence in this case, the Corporation Commission is of opinion 
that the prayer of complainant cannot be granted, but that the maximum rates 
for defendant company at the Durham exchange should not exceed the pro- 
posed rates, and it is so ordered. 

The maximum rates of defendant company shall not exceed the following, 
to-wit : 

Bate per Month. 

Special line business $4.00 

Three-party line business 3.00 

Four-party line business 2.50 

Special line residence 2.50 

Three-party line residence 2.00

ing offices, using the same 'phone (for each) 2.50 

All of above apply in exchange limits of a radius of 1% miles. 

OUTSIDE OF EXCHANGE LIMITS. 

Special line residence 3.00 

Special line business 4.50 



TOWN OF NEWPORT v. NORFOLK AND SOUTHERN RAILWAY— PETI- 
TION FOR FREIGHT AND PASSENGER FACILITIES AT NEWPORT. 

It is alleged in the petition filed in this case that Newport is an incorporated 
town on defendant's road, and that the defendant does not furnish a suitable 
or proper depot for passengers or freight at that depot ; that the present sta- 
tion is located in the middle of the street, blocking the street, and that it is 
entirely too small to accommodate the public, often necessitating passengers to 
stand outdoors ; that it is provided with only one waiting room for white and 
colored passengers and the company's agent ; that the defendant, about April, 
1903, agreed with the town of Newport that, if it would move a certain 
building from a lot which was suitable for a depot, it would build a suitable 
and convenient building ; that the town of Newport, at the cost of $100, did as 
it agreed, and the defendant purchased the said lot, but fails and refuses to 
build the station, as it agreed to do. 

This petition being filed, and properly served on the defendant July 4, 1907, 
and the matter coming on to be heard, and it appearing that no answer is made 
thereto, the Commission is of opinion that the facilities asked for in the peti- 
tion should be granted, in order to promote the security, convenience and ac- 
commodation of the public, and it is so ordered. 

It is further ordered that same be provided within sixty days from this date. 

Sam. L. Rogers, 
Commissioner. 

PITTS & MONROE v. SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY— FAILURE TO 

FURNISH CARS. 

Rogers, Commissioner. 

Plaintiff Monroe and A. M. Smith, superintendent for defendant, appear be- 
fore the Commission and submit correspondence relative to the matter com- 
plained of, as the complaint and answer herein. 

The following facts appear : Pitts & Monroe, through the Dowd Lumber 
Company, Bear Creek, N. C, applied in writing to the defendant company, 
January 23, 1907, for five cars to ship lumber to Pitts & Monroe, Greensboro, 
N. C, and placed with the company's agent at Bear Creek $10 as a forfeit, as 
prescribed by the Commission's Rule 9 ; that Pitts & Monroe are members of 
the Dowd Lumber Company, and directed them to make the said application 
for the cars to ship the lumber, and furnished the $10 forfeit money placed 
with the defendant's agent; that the defendant company failed to furnish all 



220 1ST. C. CORPOBATION COMMISSION. 

of the cars applied for within the time required by the rule, and that the delay 
after the expiration of free time aggregates eighteen days. Rule 9 referred to 
requires : "Where a shipper makes application in writing for a car or cars to 
be loaded with any kind of freight, and the railroad company fails to furnish 
same within four days from 7 o'clock A. M. next day after such application, 
such railroad company so offending shall forfeit and pay to the shipper apply- 
ing the sum of one dollar per car per day for each day or fraction of a day's 
delay after the expiration of free time." _ 

Therefore, the Commission is of the opinion that Rule 9 has been violated by 
the railroad company, in that it failed to furnish the cars applied for, and 
also failed to pay, upon demand, the forfeiture, to-wit, $18, as provided by said 
rule. 



CUMNOCK LUMBER COMPANY v. SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY- 
FAILURE TO FURNISH CARS. 

Rogers, Commissioner. 

This cause grows out of the plaintiff's demand for the payment of the sum 
of $202 as a forfeit by the defendant for failing to furnish the Cumnock Lum- 
ber Company, Cumnock, North Carolina, cars for the shipment of lumber from 
that point to Greensboro, North Carolina. 

The plaintiff, through E. C. Lassiter, and the defendant, by its superin- 
tendent, A. M. Smith, appear before the Commission and submit statements as 
to the complaint and answer in the cause. 

E. C. Lassiter says he is a member of the Cumnock Lumber Company, doing 
a lumber business at Cumnock, North Carolina, and that in the months of 
December, 1906, and January and February, 1907, he made application for 
cars for his company to ship lumber to Greensboro ; that he made a deposit of 
$2 as a forfeit for each car applied for, as is provided for in the Commission's 
Rule 9 (the plaintiff files receipts for the several deposits, signed by the com- 
pany's agent at Cumnock) ; that the railway company, upon his said applica- 
tion, furnished the Cumnock Lumber Company cars so applied for, but not 
within the time required by the rule, but after 202 days' delay after the free 
time given in the rule, and thereby forfeiting $202. 

Superintendent Smith, answering, says that the application of the plaintiff 
was not made in writing, as Rule 9 provides for ; that the plaintiff E. C. Las- 
siter is not the shipper, and that the Cumnock Lumber Company is, and that it 
has made no application for cars and has made no claim of forfeiture ; that 
there has been no legal demand for forfeiture; that the demand for forfeit 
was made to the Commission and not to the railway company ; that the demand 
must be made within thirty days from the expiration of free time ; that the 
rule has not been violated, and that there is no forfeit due the plaintiff. 

Rule 9 referred to provides : "Where a shipper makes application in writing 
for a car or cars to be loaded with any kind of freight, and the railroad com- 
pany fails to furnish same within four days from 7 o'clock A. M. next day 
after such application, such railroad company so offending shall forfeit and 
pay to the shipper applying the sum of one dollar per day fer each day or 
fraction of a day's delay after the expiration of free time, provided the shipper 
makes demand therefor in writing within thirty days thereafter. The railroad 
companies may require applicant to deposit two dollars for each car so de- 
manded. This money may be retained as a forfeit to the railroad company." 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 221 

It seems that this cause may be determined by a construction of Rule 9 and 
by finding the time covering the delay after the free time provided for in the 
rule, if any, in furnishing the cars applied for. The statements of fact made 
by plaintiff and defendant are not conflicting. In the opinion of the Commis- 
sion, the purpose of the written application provided for in the rule is for the 
railroad company to have a ~bona fide application for cars for the shipment of 
freight, and to be definitely informed regarding the proposed shipment, so that 
no misunderstanding may arise nor delays in the transportation occur, thus 
protecting the company against forfeiture that might result from these causes. 

The Commission is of the opinion that this provision of the rule may be 
waived, and in this case, when defendant required the plaintiff to deposit $2 
for each car applied for, as a forfeit in case it did not load the cars as pro- 
vided by the rule, when furnished, and gave to the plaintiff a receipt for the 
said deposit, which set forth the number of cars applied for, the character of 
freight with which to be loaded, date, and points between which the cars were 
to move, and thus availed itself of the full benefit of the rule, the railroad 
company waived the written application that otherwise might have been re- 
quired of the shipper. 

It appearing to the Commission that the railway company respected the 
several applications of E. C. Lassiter for cars and furnished them to his com- 
pany, and that the same were loaded by them with lumber for Greensboro, as 
was understood when the cars were applied for ; and it appearing that the rail- 
way company released the deposits made by E. C. Lassiter with his application 
for cars, and that E. C. Lassiter admits that he has no further demand for 
cars on account of the application so made : 

It is the opinion of the Commission that all parties to this transaction were 
in accord with one understanding, and that E. C. Lassiter acted for his com- 
pany within his province, both in his application for cars and in his demand 
for forfeiture ; and if the railway company undertook to furnish the cars, 
under all the circumstances, they should be required to do so within the time 
required by the rule. 

The Commission rules that, in cases of forfeiture under Rule 9, the shipper 
may demand of the railway company, either in person or through the Commis- 
sion, the forfeit, provided the demand is made upon the railway company 
within thirty days after the day in which the delay and forfeiture occurred. 

The memoranda filed in this case show delays after free time aggregating 
137 days. 

Therefore, it is the opinion of the Commission that the rule has been violated 
by the defendant company, in that it failed to furnish the cars applied for, and 
failed to pay the forfeit, to-wit, $137, as the rule required. 



A. & M. COLLEGE v. SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY. 

This is a complaint for refund of overcharge for switching two cars, on the 
17th and 19th of March, respectively; one is Southern car No. 10076 and the 
other car No. 57820. The amount charged was $5. The distance is within two 
miles, and under Rule 30 of the Commission the charge should not exceed $3. 

It is ordered that the excess be refunded. Franklin McNeill,

222 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

ROBERT J. YATES v. SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY— FAILURE TO 

FURNISH CARS. 

Rogeks, Commissioner. 

This proceeding is upon claim of plaintiff, demanding of defendant the pay- 
ment of $11 demurrage alleged to be due on account of defendant company 
failing, upon his application, February, 1907, to furnish cars for loading 
freight, and in violation of the Commission's demurrage rule, No. 9. 

And the cause coming on to be heard, September 21, 1907, James H. Pou, 
representing defendant, and it appearing from the correspondence relating to 
the matter in controversy, both of plaintiff and defendant, on file in the pro- 
ceeding, that the rule had been violated, and that the amount forfeited by the 
railroad and payable to the plaintiff was the only question for consideration ; 
and it appearing further that the plaintiff is willing to accept in full settle- 
ment of his claim the sum of $7.50, and that amount is due him : 

Now, therefore, it is the opinion of the Commission that the defendant has 
violated the Commission's demurrage rule, No. 9, and that the defendant has 
forfeited to the plaintiff the sum of $7.50. 

It is ordered by the Commission that the defendant pay to the plaintiff 
within ten days the sum of $7.50 in full settlement of plaintiff's claim in this 
cause. 



THE SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY v. E. D. TOMLINSON, GUARDIAN 
FOR E. C. TOMLINSON— IN THE MATTER OF CONDEMNATION OF 
LAND OF E. D. TOMLINSON, GUARDIAN. 

This cause coming on to be heard, and being heard before the Corporation 
Commission on Tuesday, the 29th day of October, 1907, upon notice of petition 
and proofs, and it appearing to the court that due notice has been served upon 
said E. D. Tomlinson, guardian, defendant, and copy of petition for condemna- 
tion being served with said notice in due time, and no answer having been filed 
by said defendant, E. D. Tomlinson, guardian, as required by law and the order 
of this Commission; and upon the proofs and exhibits given to this court of 
the necessity of the order of condemnation and of its benefits to the community, 
and there appearing no reason why said land should not be condemned in the 
way provided by law : 

It is ordered and adjudged by this court that a proceeding to condemn the 
land of E. D. Tomlinson, guardian, according to prayer of said petition filed, 
and the condemnation thereof be and the same is hereby approved.

SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY, COMPLAINANT, v. L. W. ELLIOTT, 

DEFENDANT. 

This was a petition by complainant for the approval of the Corporation Com- 
mission of the condemnation of certain lands for the purpose of constructing a- 
belt line in or around the town of Thomasville, in Davidson County, under 
chapter 466, Public Laws of 1907; and upon filing answer, defendant insisted 
on having an opportunity of introducing evidence for the consideration of the 
Commission. 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 223 

A date was fixed and the evidence of both parties was introduced and taken 
down by a stenographer, and this has been typewritten and is now on file in 
this case. 

Counsel asked that a day for the argument be named, and the 12th day of 
December, 1907, was fixed, on which day S. E. Williams, attorney for complain- 
ant, and W. C. Douglas, attorney for defendant, appeared. 

It was insisted by defendant's counsel that the application of complainant 
did not contain facts sufficient to warrant the Corporation Commission in giv- 
ing its approval to the condemnation, and that the evidence was also insuffi- 
cient. 

Upon consideration of the whole matter, the Corporation Commission is of 
the opinion that complainant is acting in good faith and with bona fide purpose 
of building the belt line described in the petition, and that defendant's loss can 
be repaired by assessing damage. 

And it is therefore ordered that the approval of the Corporation Commission 
be granted, as prayed for. Franklin McNeill, 

Chairman. 

CITIZENS OF CHERRYFIELD v. TRANSYLVANIA RAILWAY COMPANY. 
PETITION FOR REMOVAL OF CHERRYFIELD STATION. 

Rogers, Commissioner. 

For the convenience of all parties concerned in this matter, the hearing was 
at Brevard, Transylvania County, before the undersigned Commissioner, Sep- 
tember 25, 1907. 

This is a petition by seventy-five persons, certified to by the Clerk of the 
Superior Court of Transylvania County, as citizens of said county and patrons 
of Cherryfield Station, asking the removal of Cherryfield Station to another 
point, about 400 yards west from the present station, where the railroad and 
the public highway cross. 

The petition sets forth that the removal of the station is for the great public 
necessity and will promote the convenience and accommodation of the public. 

The defendant company herein, by its superintendent and roadmaster, ap- 
peared before the Commissioner and made no defense, but signified a willing- 
ness to abide the order of the Commission ; but other citizens of Cherryfield 
appeared in person and also by their attorney, Len English, Esq., and opposed 
the removal of the station. The petitioners were represented by W. W. Zach- 
ary, Esq. Evidence was taken, both of the petitioners and those opposing the 
petition, and a- typewritten copy thereof is filed in the case and made a part of 
this report. 

It appears from the evidence that the present station is inaccessible, in that 
it is located in a dip between two grades ; that it is off the public highway, at 
one point 1,520" feet and at another 2,200 feet; and that the property surround- 
ing the station, over which a road might be had, is private property ; the roads 
in use leading to the station are not under public supervision and are rough 
and rather steep ; that the proposed site is at the crossing of the public high- 
way, at the top of the grade, is 2,200 feet west from the present site, and that 
ample ground for depot building and yard is tendered free of charge to the 
railroad company if it will so use it. 

I believe the interest of a greater number will be subserved and the con- 
venience and accommodation of the public promoted if the petition herein is 
granted. (Signed) Sam. L. Rogers. 



224 N. C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

It appearing from the report and the copy of the evidence filed herein that 
the convenience and accommodation of the public will be promoted by the 
removal of the station at Cherryfield to the site proposed in the petition filed 
in this cause, it is ordered by the Commission that the prayer of the petitioners 
be granted, and that the station of Cherryfield be removed to the proposed site 
at the top of the grade near the crossing of the public highway and the rail- 
road west of the present station. 



CITIZENS OF THE TOWN OF WADESBORO v. ATLANTIC COAST LINE 
RAILROAD COMPANY AND SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY— PETI- 
TION FOR UNION PASSENGER STATION. 

Rogers, Commissioner. 

Petition filed in this case was heard at Wadesboro, October 24, 1907. 

Petitioners were represented by Mayor W. E. Brock, Messrs. Fred. J. Coxe, 
H. H. McLendon, T. L. Caudle, John T. Bennett, John W. Gulledge and L. D. 
Robinson ; the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company, by R. B. Haire, district 
superintendent ; and the Seaboard Air Line Railway, by J. M. Shea, division 
superintendent. 

Testimony of many witnesses was taken in writing and a copy of same filed 
in the proceeding. The testimony shows the following facts : That the Sea- 
board Air Line Railway and the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad companies are 
within the corporate limits of the town of Wadesboro, and that they have now, 
and have had for several years, one common or union passenger depot; that 
the structure is not commensurate with the business and revenue of the de- 
fendant roads at that point, and the depot building is not properly kept ; that 
neither the convenience, accommodation nor the safety of the traveling public 
is provided for ; that the depot now used in common by the railway company 
is a single-story wood structure, with one waiting room each for white and 
colored passengers, 20 x 12 feet, with a seating capacity each for about sixteen 
persons ; that the revenue of the Seaboard Air Line Railway, as stated by it, 
for the year ending June 30, 1907, from freight is $50,066; from passengers, 
$16.105 ; that the revenue of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company, as 
stated by it, for the same period, from freight and passengers is $51,000. 

Therefore, it is the opinion of the Commission that it is practicable and' that 
the necessity of the case requires the Seaboard Air Line Railway and the 
Atlantic Coast Line Railroad companies to have one common or union passen- 
ger depot at Wadesboro commensurate with the business and revenue of -said 
roads, and to unite in the joint undertaking and cost of providing and main- 
taining such station, and on such terms as they may agree upon, and the same 
be provided within ninety days. 

It is further ordered that the plan and specifications therefor be submitted 
to the Commission before work on the building is begun. 

This matter is retained for further direction. 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 225 

IN RE WRECK ON THE SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY AT PAMLICO 

JUNCTION. 

On the morning of the 25th of December, at 4 :19, there was a collision of 
first division of No. 84 passenger train with a coal car to which a caboose car 
was attached, immediately north of the Raleigh and Pamlico Division and 
two and three-quarter miles from Johnson Street Station, in which W. A. 
Weatherspoon, flagman on the extra freight, No. G47, of which the said coal 
and caboose cars formed a part, was killed. The engine of No. 84 was badly 
broken up and turned over on one side ; the mail car was badly broken up, and 
the regular express car was broken on front and derailed. The coal car which 
was struck by the engine of No. 84 was burned, and the front end of the 
caboose car attached to it was broken. 

The Corporation Commission undertook to investigate the cause of this 
wreck, and found the following facts : 

The coal car and caboose attached to it were part of extra freight train 
No. 647. This train entered the north yard of the Seaboard Air Line Railway 
at Raleigh about 3 :10 A. M. of the 25th of December. The evidence showed 
that the caboose car was in the rear and coupled to the coal car, which car was 
struck by the engine. The evidence tended to show that brakes were applied 
to the cars on this train by the train crew after it entered the yard, and also 
that the brakes were tried by the shifting crew on the yard. 

Extra freight train No. 647 left Norlina at 7 A. M. on the 24th of December, 
and entered the north freight yard of the Seaboard Air Line at Raleigh about 
3 :10 A. M. on the 25th of December. It therefore appears that the crew had 
been on duty about twenty hours, during which, the conductor testified, neither 
he nor any of his crew had slept, so far as he knew. 

After the caboose car was stopped on the yard W. A. Weatherspoon and two 
of the brakemen on this freight train went into it to sleep. No one can account 
for the uncoupling of these two cars from the rest of the freight train. In 
some way the coal car became uncoupled from the car in front of it, and the 
two cars were put in motion toward the north of the yard, in which direction 
there is a descending grade, and descended of their own momentum to the 
point where the collision occurred, where they were stopped by an ascending 
grade. 

In order to avoid the danger of cars running down this grade from the 
freight yard, the railroad company put in a safety switch and employed a day 
and night switchman to attend to this switch, with orders to keep it connected 
with the track leading out of the freight yard. Monroe IJpchurch, the night 
switchman, admitted that he had disobeyed his instructions and had con- 
nected the track leading out of the yard with the main track instead of the 
safety track. This was the reason the cars escaped from the yard and ob- 
structed the main track and caused the collision. The conduct of Monroe 
Upchurch showed that he was unreliable and unfit for his position. 

This wreck was caused by the employment of an unreliable and incompetent 
night switchman. 

The evidence of this investigation was taken by a stenographer and type- 
written, and is on file in this office. 

It is ordered that a copy of these findings be furnished to the Seaboard Air 
Line Railway. Feanklin McNeill, 

1 15 Chairman. 



226 K". C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

TOWN OF LINCOLNTON et al. v. SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY AND 
CAROLINA AND NORTHWESTERN RAILWAY COMPANY— PETITION 
FOR UNION PASSENGER STATION. 

Rogeks, Commissioner. 

The petition in this case was heard at Lincolnton, August 23, 1907; C. E. 
Childs, Esq., representing town of Lincolnton; John D. Shaw, Esq., represent- 
ing Seaboard Air Line Railway ; the answer of the Carolina and Northwestern 
Railway Company being their only appearance. Testimony was taken, a type- 
written copy of which is filed in the record herewith. 

Upon motion of John D. Shaw, Esq., for the Seaboard. Air Line Railway, to 
have time in which to furnish certain evidence, the case was set for further 
hearing September 23, 1907. 

On the 23d day of September, 1907, John D. Shaw, Esq., C, E. Childs, Esq., 
and L. T. Nichols, general manager of the Carolina and Northwestern Railway 
Company, appeared before the Commission at Raleigh and offered an agree- 
ment, the terms of which are set forth in a copy of the agreement filed in the 
proceedings, and asked that the Commission enter judgment in this case 
accordingly. 

It is therefore ordered by the Commission that the terms of the agreement 
be and the same are hereby approved and made a part of their judgment. 

It is further ordered that the railway companies, defendants herein, make 
reports to the Commission within sixty days from October 18, 1907, showing 
that the terms of the said agreement are being complied with. 



STATE'S PRISON v. RALEIGH AND SOUTHPORT RAILWAY COMPANY- 
RATE ON BRICK CLAY. 

This cause coming on to be heard, and the evidence being carefully considered 
by the North Carolina Corporation Commission, they are of the opinion that 
$4.50 per carload of clay for moving the same from the plaintiff's siding on 
Walnut Creek to the State's Prison is a fair and just rate to both parties con- 
cerned ; and it is hereby ordered that the rate be fixed at that amount.

W. F. WILLIAMS, A. T. McCALLUM et al., CITIZENS, v. SEABOARD AIR 
LINE RAILWAY AND ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD COM- 
PANY— MAXTON CONNECTION. 

This was a proceeding begun for the purpose of establishing connection of 
defendants' trains at Maxton. 

The following are the facts : For about ten years the trains of the Seaboard 
Air Line Railway and the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company were so 
scheduled and operated as to afford transportation from Charlotte and inter- 
mediate points to points east or north of Maxton on the Atlantic Coast Line 
Railroad by close connection at Maxton. The Seaboard Air Line Railway's 
train was scheduled to leave Charlotte at 4 :15 A. M. and arrive at Hamlet at 
7:05 A. M. ; leave Hamlet at 7:50 A. M. and arrive at Maxton at 8:50 A. M. 
The Atlantic Coast Line's train was scheduled to leave Bennettsville at 8 :30 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 227 

A. M. and arrive at Maxton at 9 :35 A. M. This connection was broken. Com- 
plaint was made about it, which was heard on June 20, 1907. Atlantic Coast 
Line Railroad Company answered that they were not responsible for the break 
of the connection; that there had been no change in their schedule. The 
Seaboard Air Line Railway answered, admitting that they were responsible for 
the break of connection, and that they had changed their schedule so as to 
arrive at Maxton at 10 :30 A. M. They insisted, however, that this change 
was made for an important reason, namely, to enable the Seaboard Air Line 
Railway to connect with the trains of the Frisco System at Birmingham. The 
Seaboard Air Line Railway's train No. 38 is scheduled to leave Birmingham 
at 4 :15 P. M. and arrive at Atlanta at 9 :45 P. M. ; leave Atlanta at 11 P. M. 
and arrive at Monroe at 7 :30 A. M. ; leave Monroe at 7 :35 A. M. and arrive at 
Hamlet at 9 :25 A. M. 

Both companies admitted the importance of restoring the Maxton connection, 
and both manifested a willingness to arrange to restore it, and it was agreed 
that the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company would change its schedule 
so as to arrive at Maxton at 10 :20 A. M. and leave at 10 :25 A. M., holding 
train, however, for ten minutes, if necessary, to make the connection. The 
Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company could not make the time for leaving 
Maxton later and keep its connection with the main line at Fayetteville, which 
is admittedly a very important connection. 

It was further agreed that the Seaboard Air Line Railway would change 
its schedule so as to arrive at Maxton at 10 :20 A. M. This agreement was 
not carried out, and this failure is the basis of the complaint now under con- 
sideration. 

It appeared to the Commission that the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Com- 
pany had kept its agreement, and that the failure was caused by the Sea- 
board Air Line Railway not keeping its agreement. The Seaboard Air Line 
Railway was notified to appear before the Commission on the 4th of Septem- 
ber. It did appear, by General Superintendent C. H. Hix, Engineer M. of Ways, 
J. C. Nelson and Division Superintendent J. M. Shea. They admitted that the 
Seaboard Air Line Railway had not carried out its agreement, and alleged 
that it had found it impossible to keep the schedule at Maxton without break' 
ing the connection with No. 38 at Hamlet, and that they regarded this latter 
connection as more important than the Maxton connection. 

It is by means of connection with train No. 38 at Monroe with the train 
which is scheduled to leave Charlotte at 6 :30 A. M. that the traveling public, 
as well as mail and express, from Charlotte and intermediate points are trans- 
ported to Hamlet, and the importance of this connection is manifest. Whether 
it is practicable to move No. 38 out of Atlanta earlier, so as to secure the 
arrival at Hamlet in time to make the Maxton connection the Commission is 
unable to determine. The break of the service heretofore rendered between 
Charlotte and Wilmington is not to be considered. It is the duty of the Sea- 
board Air Line Railway to furnish transportation for the traveling public from 
Charlotte to Wilmington, so as to make such important connections as were 
heretofore made, and it is no valid excuse to say that this service has been 
discontinued in order to make through connection with trains beyond Birming- 
ham. 

It is agreed by the Seaboard Air Line Railway that on October 1st the con- 
nection at Maxton shall be restored and maintained after that date, so as 



228 N". C. CORPORATION COMMISSION. 

to furnish passengers from Charlotte and intermediate points transportation 
by close connection at Maxton for Red Springs, Fayetteville and other points 
on the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad. If this agreement can be carried out by 
changing schedule of No. 38, this will, of course, be satisfactory; if it cannot 
be done in this manner, then the Seaboard Air Line Railway must furnish such 
additional facilities as may be necessary to that end, and it is so ordered. 
This the 4th day of September. Franklin McNeill, 

Chairman. 

F. R. ROSE, S. H. THOMPSON et al. v. SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY 
AND ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD COMPANY. 

Complainants allege failure on the part of defendants to connect daily at 
Sanford, as provided by their schedules, and that the traveling public are 
inconvenienced thereby. 

It appeared to the Commission, from correspondence with defendants, that 
failure was attributable to the Southern Railway. 

The matter was heard on September 4, 1907, after notice, and Mr. A. M. 
Smith, superintendent of the division, appeared for Southern Railway. It 
was agreed that the causes which delayed Southern Railway's trains would 
be removed and that the connection would be kept in the future. 

It is ordered that Southern Railway's train from Mount Airy shall arrive 
at Sanford at 3 :30 P. M., and that the Atlantic Coast Line's train shall leave 
at 3 :40 P. M., unless it be found necessary to wait for Southern Railway 
connection, in which event the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad shall hold train 
twenty minutes longer, if necessary. 

This September 4, 1907. Franklin McNeill, 

Chairman. 

CITIZENS OF CLINTON v. WESTERN UNION TELEGRAPH COMPANY- 
PETITION FOR DOWNTOWN OFFICE. 

This case is heard upon petition and answer filed herein. 

It appears from the petition that the citizens of Clinton desire a downtown 
telegraph office for the greater convenience of the business public ; that the 
present office is at the railroad station, one-sixth of a mile from the courthouse 
and business center. 

In answer the defendant telegraph company admits that the present office is 
200 yards from the business center of the town, and that it would prefer to be 
more centrally located ; but, further answering, says that the receipts for the 
past twelve months at Clinton averaged $32.33 per month ; and while it would 
be expected that they would be considerably increased if the office were more 
centrally located, even then the office would not be self-sustaining; that the 
cost of an office would not be less than $60 per month, for manager, messenger, 
light, heat, etc. 

And, no other statements of fact appearing, the Commission is of opinion that 
the petition should be dismissed. It is so ordered. Sam. L. Rogers, 

Commissioner. 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 229 

H. B. VARNER v. CAROLINA VALLEY RAILWAY— PASSENGER 

SERVICE. 

This case was heard August 1, 1907. Complainant was present, and E. M. 
Hohl, general manager of defendant company, was present. 

Upon consideration of the allegations and admissions of the parties, we are 
of the opinion that the amount of business on defendant's railroad will not 
justify an order for daily passenger service, as prayed for. 

It appeared to the Commission that the defendant now operates tri-weekly 
trains — Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday ; that this schedule is advertised and 
is substantially kept. 

It is therefore ordered that the petition be dismissed. 

Franklin McNeill, 

Chairman. 

CITIZENS OF LOWE AND PINE LOG v. SEABOARD AIR LINE 

RAILWAY. 

This cause was heard July 31, 1907, and the evidence shows that Pine Log 
is a flag stop for passengers, but has no accommodations for their comfort or 
convenience and is not a freight stop, and that Lowe is a freight stop, but not 
a passenger stop. These stations are three-fourths of a mile apart and are 
connected by a wagon-way. Each place is situated on a public road. The 
nearest station east of Pine Log is Lumberton, which is five and one-quarter 
miles from Pine Log and is six miles from Lowe. A considerable part of the 
land between Pine Log and Lumberton is swampy and uninhabited. The 
nearest station west of Lowe is Moss Neck, which is three miles from Lowe 
and three and three-quarter miles from Pine Log. 

The Seaboard Air Line Railway proposes that, if the passenger stop now 
located at Pine Log and the freight stop now located at Lowe may be com- 
bined and located at Lowe, said railway will put up a freight station and 
accommodations for passengers at that point. 

After careful consideration, the Corporation Commission is of the opinion 
that the flag stop for passengers and the freight stop should both be located at 
Lowe, and the flag stop at Pine Log discontinued, and it is so ordered. 

The Commission further directs that the Seaboard Air Line Railway, within 
sixty days from this date, provide at Lowe adequate accommodations for both 
freight and passengers. Franklin McNeill, 

Chairman. 

THE ROANOKE BRICK COMPANY AND BALFRON KNITTING COM-

to the North Carolina Corporation Commission that the Seaboard Air Line 
Railway has agreed to construct a siding, as demanded in the petitions of the 
plaintiffs, it is considered, ordered and adjudged : 

1. That the Seaboard Air Line Railway construct a spur or side track at the 
plant mentioned and described in the petitions, to-wit, about one and one-half 
miles from the town of Weldon, of sufficient length to hold five cars.

WACCAMAW LUMBER COMPANY v. ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD 

COMPANY. 

Petition to discontinue flag stop at Bolton and establish depot and side tracks 
about one mile south thereof. 

This matter coming on to be heard, and it appearing that notice of petition 
to discontinue flag stop at Bolton was published, as required by the rules of 
the Commission ; and it further appearing that the defendant consents to estab- 
lish station and erect a depot, as prayed for in petition ; and it further appear- 
ing that the convenience of the public will be promoted by discontinuing flag 
stop at Bolton and establishing depot, with proper facilities, about one mile 
south of said flag stop. 

It is hereby ordered that the 'present flag stop at Bolton be discontinued and 
that the defendant establish a station at a point about one mile south thereof 
and erect a depot, with proper facilities, commensurate with the revenue and 
business at said place, within three months from the date hereof.

CITIZENS OF NEWTON v. WESTERN UNION TELEGRAPH COMPANY. 

This is a petition to require defendant to establish a telegraph office at 
Newton. 

A hearing was set for July 17, 1907, and the parties were duly notified. 
Petitioners did not appear in person nor by counsel. Defendant was repre- 
sented by L. D. Beale, assistant superintendent. 

The following facts appear : The Western Union Telegraph Company has an 
office at the depot of the Southern Railway and Carolina and Northwestern 
Railway, about one mile from the town of Newton. For the convenience of its 
patrons at said office the defendant maintains two messengers, in order to 
facilitate the handling of business from town and the depot office. The receipts 
from this office, located at the depot at Newton, for the year ending May 31, 
1907, were $821.15, an average of $68.43 a month. Sixty-three per cent, of the 
receipts at said office are derived from passengers on passing trains and from 
the Clyde Cotton Mills, fifty yards from said depot ; and from Newton Cotton 
Mills, 400 yards from said depot ; and from Catawba Cotton Mills, 450 yards 
from said depot. Eight per cent, of the receipts at said office were derived 
from the Newton Roller Mills, eight per cent, from the Newton Hosiery Mills, 
and twenty-one per cent, scattering, or thirty-seven per cent, from the town 
proper. It would cost the defendant about $75 per month to operate an inde- 
pendent office in the town of Newton.

Upon the foregoing facts, the Corporation Commission is of the opinion that 
it would not be warranted in granting the prayer of the petitioners. 
It is therefore ordered that the petition be dismissed.

HIGH POINT BRICK COMPANY v. SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY. 

Complaint having been filed by the High Point Brick Company, asking that 
the Southern Railway be required to put in a side track for it, about 100 feet 
south of the three-mile post between High Point and Trinity stations, on the 
High Point and Ashboro Railroad, the Corporation Commission finds, upon 
investigation : 

1. That the High Point Brick Company has a plant for the manufacture of 
brick, with a capacity of 40,000 to 50,000 brick per day, located at the point 
at which it has asked for the side track to be constructed. 

2. That after it applied to the Corporation Commission, the officials of the 
Southern Railway submitted to the High Point Brick Company the usual form 
of application for industrial tracks, and the said brick company, through its 
officers, signed the contract so submitted, and in accordance therewith they 
graded the proposed track and delivered the necessary cross-ties for its equip- 
ment. 

3. That the Southern Railway Company, after the said brick company had 
complied with its contract, did nothing further in the matter, and has for 
several weeks neglected to put in the proposed track, although the said brick 
company is greatly inconvenienced and its business injured thereby. 

It is therefore ordered that the Southern Railway cause the said side track 
to be constructed and ready for use within thirty days from this date.

depot at Neuse Station, on defendant's road, was burned, on or about Decem- 
ber 31, 1906, and that the public is inconvenienced by failure of said company 
to rebuild said station and provide suitable accommodations for passengers and 
freight at that point : 

It is therefore ordered by the Commission that the Seaboard Air Line Rail- 
way Company erect a freight and passenger station at Neuse within sixty days 
from the date hereof, commensurate with the business and revenue at said 
station. Franklin McNeill,

T. H. BARRETT & BRO. v. SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY. 

An investigation of this matter shows that Messrs. T. H. Barrett & Bro. have 
established a lumber plant on the north side of the Meherrin River, about one- 
fourth of a mile east of the tracks of the Boykin and Lewiston branch of the 
Seaboard Air Line Railway, and have acquired a right of way from the said 
lumber plant to the railroad. They have made application to the said Seaboard 



232 N". C. CORPOEATIOK" COMMISSION". 

Air Line Railway to put in a siding for them at this point sufficient in length to 
hold three cars at a time, and have agreed to do the necessary grading and 
furnish the cross- ties therefor at their own expense. The point at which they 
have asked the siding is practicable for that purpose and is in the State of 
North Carolina. 

The distance from this plant to Boykin, Va., the nearest station north, is 
four miles, over a very bad clay road. The distance to Severn, the nearest 
station south, is about three miles, with an unfordable river to cross, the only 
bridge over which is condemned and is impracticable for loaded wagons. 

T. H. Barrett & Bro. have some 2,000,000 feet of pine and 4,000,000 feet of 
gum to ship from this point. They allege that the gum will not bear trans- 
portation if it has to be hauled by wagon, under such circumstances. 

The Commission is of the opinion that the complainants are entitled to have 
such a siding as asked for at this point, and the Seaboard Air Line Railway is 
hereby ordered to put in the same for them within thirty days from this date, 
the complainants to do the necessary grading and furnish cross-ties. 



W. L. TAYLOR v. SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY— FORFEITURE FOR 
FAILURE TO FURNISH CARS. 

Rogeks, Commissioner. 

This matter is heard by the Commission upon the correspondence relating 
thereto, submitted by the plaintiff and J. M. Bennett, superintendent of the 
defendant company, and made the file in this case. 

The plaintiff filed with the Commission, January 30, 1907, form No. 41, a 
blank "form provided by the defendant company for application for cars, on 
which it appears that W. L. Taylor made written application to the defendant's 
agent, December 10, 1906, for one car to be loaded with freight at Bullock and 
transported to Oxford, North Carolina, and with said application deposited $2 
as a forfeit in case the said car was not loaded, as the Commission's demurrage 
rule provided. 

The plaintiff further states that the car so applied for was furnished Decem- 
ber 20, 1906, and the form, No. 41, and the $2 deposited with it was returned 
to him ; that he thereupon demanded of agent of the defendant company the 
payment of the forfeiture incurred by his failure to provide within the time 
prescribed by the rule the car applied for, and that the agent declined, January 
10 or 12, 1907, to pay the same, on the ground that he had no authority to do so. 

J. M. Bennett, superintendent of defendant company, as shown by letter, 
June 13, 1907, states that he will settle the plaintiff's claim as quickly as pos- 
sible. He also states in a letter of November 14, 1907, that he is handling the 
matter with the plaintiff with the view of getting him to withdraw the claim 
against the defendant company. 

The defendant company does not contend that the car applied for was fur- 
nished within the time prescribed by the Commission's rule, nor that the de- 
mand for the payment of any forfeiture that may have been incurred thereby 
has not been promptly made. 

The Commission finds that the defendant failed for eight days to furnish to 
the plaintiff the car applied for, and that the time is a delay of four days 
after the expiration of free time provided in the Commission's demurrage rule ; 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 233 

that forfeiture of $4 by defendant company on account of plaintiff's applica- 
tion has been made, and that plaintiff has made demand for the payment 
thereof, and that the same has not been paid. 

The Commission is of the opinion that the demurrage rules of the Commis- 
sion have been violated. 



B. STANSEL AND OTHERS, L. T. COTTINGHAM AND OTHERS v. SEA- 
BOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY— PROCEEDING TO ESTABLISH DEPOT 
AND AGENCY AT ALLENTON, TOGETHER WITH PETITION TO DIS- 
CONTINUE FLAG STATION AT ALLENTON AND ESTABLISH DEPOT 
AND AGENCY AT OR NEAR COTTINGHAM'S MILL, TO BE CALLED 
BELLAMY. 

Petition was filed by B. Stansel and others to require defendant to erect a 
passenger and freight station and establish agency at Allenton. 

Petition was also filed by L. T. Cottingham and others to discontinue Allen- 
ton as a flag station and require defendant to erect a passenger and freight 
station and establish agency at or near Cottingham's Mills, to be called Bel- 
lamy. 

After notice to and for the convenience of parties, testimony was taken at 
Lumberton on the 23d day of January, 1907. This testimony has been type- 
written and is now filed in this office. The matter was heard at the office of 
the Corporation Commission on the 27th day of February, 1007. E. J. Britt, 
Esq., represented B. Stansel and others ; McLean, McLean & McCormick, attor- 
neys, represented L. T. Cottingham and others ; Maj. John D. Shaw and Messrs. 
Mclntyre & Lawrence, attorneys, represented the Seaboard Air Line Railway. 

The Corporation Commission finds the following facts : 

Allenton is situated on the Seaboard Air Line Railway, between Lumberton 
and Bladenboro stations, five miles east of Lumberton and nine miles west of 
Bladenboro. Cottingham's Mill is about six and a half miles and Bellamy 
about seven miles east of Lumberton. Allenton has been a flag station on this 
railroad for about thirty years. There is a railroad siding there about 400 
yards long, which was built by B. Stansel, one of the petitioners. The railroad 
also has a section house there. The location is high and dry, having natural 
drainage. There is a siding at Cottingham's Mill, built for the purpose of said 
mill. The location is low and wet and not suitable for a station without ditch- 
ing and drainage. There is a tramway running out from Cottingham for the 
purpose principally of hauling timber to that mill. Wisharts Township com- 
prises the principal territory which would be served by a station at any of 
these places, and Allenton has been for many years the voting place in this 
township. Allenton is more accessible than the other points mentioned, by 
reason of the location of roads in this section. The railroad crosses Big Swamp 
about three miles east of Allenton. There is no highway for crossing this 
swamp within a distance of about eight miles on either side of the railroad 
crossing, and Allenton was made a flag station to serve the territory immedi- 
ately north and west, and Yorkville a flag station to serve the territory immedi- 
ately south and east of Big Swamp. 

The statement of earnings for six months ending October 31, 1906, made by 
the railroad company, showed that freights at Allenton amounted to $785.98, 
and at Cottingham's Mill $1,499.84. All of this freight at Cottingham's Mill 



234 N. C. CORPORATION . COMMISSION. 

was carload, and the greater part of the freight at Allenton was also carload. 
By the rules of the railroad, all freights from either of these places going 
north or west must be billed from Lumberton, and going south or east, from 
Bladenboro. 

Counsel for defendant conceded that the defendant should provide facilities 
for protecting passengers and freight at some point in this vicinity, but claimed 
that the revenue was not sufficient to justify them in providing an agent. 

The Corporation Commission is of the opinion that, under the facts in this 
case, they should not order the discontinuance of the facilities heretofore fur- 
nished by defendant at Allenton, and that Allenton is the most suitable and 
convenient place for the location of this station. 

It is therefore ordered that the defendant erect a station at Allenton for pas- 
sengers and freight, commensurate with the revenue and business of the place,, 
and that this be done within ninety days from the date hereof.

ACME MANUFACTURING COMPANY v. SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY. 

It appearing to the Corporation Commission, from an inspection, that the 
defendant's side track to complainant's plant at Cronly is in a very dilapi- 
dated condition, and that it is impracticable and unsafe to move engine or cars; 
over it; and this fact having been called to defendant's attention, defendant, 
on the 2d day of March, promised to give the matter prompt attention. And it 
further appearing to the Commission, from report of complainant received this 
day, that nothing has been done to repair and put said side track in proper con- 
dition, and that there is now a derailment on said side track : 

It is therefore ordered that the defendant, within fifteen days from the date 
hereof, repair and put said side track in proper condition and report same to 
this Commission. Franklin McNeill, 

Chairman. 

WILMINGTON CHAMBER OF COMMERCE v. ATLANTIC COAST LINE 
RAILROAD COMPANY AND SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY. 

This is a petition for the establishment of a union passenger depot at Wil- 
mington, N. C. 

The petition was filed two years ago, but the Commission was requested by 
petitioners to withhold action, as it was alleged that the defendants were nego- 
tiating between themselves about the establishment of a union passenger depot. 

On the 9th of August, 1906, the petitioners notified the Commission that they 
were informed that the defendants had failed to agree. For the convenience 
of parties, and after due notice, the matter was heard in Wilmington on Janu- 
ary 24, 1907. From the petition and answers, admissions of parties and reports 
of defendants, and also from a personal inspection and observation of the Com- 
missioners, the following pertinent facts appear : 

The Seaboard Air Line Railway's passenger earnings at Wilmington for the 
year ending June 30, 1906, amounted to $28,712.72 ; freight earnings for the 
same period amounted to $379,904.77. 

The Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company transported into and out of Wil- 
mington for the above period 140,914 passengers and received revenue there- 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 235 

from amounting to $216,557. We have no report showing the freight earnings 
of this company at this point for this period. 

The defendants each have a passenger station, but neither of them is ade- 
quate or convenient or offers suitable accommodations for the traveling public. 
The passenger depot of the Seaboard Air Line Railway is in a very dilapidated 
condition, the estimated value of which is about $2,500 ; the estimated value of 
the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company's passenger depot is about $10,000. 

Defendant companies carried on negotiations for some months about making 
the present Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company's depot a union depot, but 
this negotiation w r as broken off, by reason of the fact that the Seaboard Air 
Line Railway alleged that the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company proposed 
unjust and unreasonable terms. The Seaboard Air Line Railway proposed to 
expend from $12,000 to $15,000 in the repair of their present station. 

It is practicable and the necessities of the case require that the Atlantic 
Coast Line Railroad Company and the Seaboard Air Line Railway, both of 
which enter into the city of Wilmington, have one common or union passenger 
depot, for the security, accommodation and convenience of the traveling public. 

It is therefore ordered that the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company and 
the Seaboard Air Line Railway unite in the joint undertaking and expense of 
erecting, constructing and maintaining a union passenger station in Wilming- 
ton commensurate with the business and revenue of the said railroad compa- 
nies ; and, to that end, that they report to this Commission within sixty days 
the location and plan of said depot ; and this cause is retained for further 
directions. Franklin McNeill,

C. T. CLIFTON, MAYOR ; R. K. CRAVEN AND OTHERS, ALDERMEN OF 
• THE TOWN OF ABBOTTSBURG ; CLARK, McCAULAY & CO. AND 
OTHERS v. SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY. 

This is a petition for passenger and freight depot at Abbottsburg. 

Defendant admits that the petitioners are entitled to the station facilities 
asked for. 

And it is ordered that a depot for the accommodation of passengers and for 
the reception and delivery of freights be erected at AJbbottsburg within ninety 
days from the date hereof, commensurate with the business and revenues at 
said station. Franklin McNeill, 

Chairman. 

J. M. LOVE & CO. v. ATLANTIC COAST LINE RAILROAD COMPANY- 
APPLICATION FOR SIDING. 

Plaintiffs in this case apply to the Commission for a six-car-length siding at 
their proposed lumber yard, about one and one-half miles from Wakulla, where 
a side track has been heretofore in operation by defendant company. 

At the hearing the Commission finds from the testimony of J. A. Love the 
fact that the plaintiffs propose, within two weeks from this date, to put in two 
mills with the daily capacity of twelve to fifteen thousand feet and six to 
seven thousand feet, respectively, to furnish lumber at plaintiffs' proposed yard ; 
that the mills are bought and in transit ; that timber approximating 6,000,000 
feet is bought and paid for; that plaintiffs must remove the timber from the 



236 ■ 1ST. C. CORPORATION" COMMISSION. 

land within five years from 1906 or the same reverts to the owner; that the 
lumber shipped from their proposed yard must go over the defendant com- 
pany's road, principally to northern markets. 

The Commission finds from the evidence of E. P. Laird, witness for defend- 
ant, the fact that the defendant company "do not wish to construct siding 
for plaintiffs," but their objection is based on their inability to provide the 
necessary rail to construct spur of six-car-length, and that there are other 
applications for spurs prior to the plaintiffs'. 

The Commission is of the opinion that the revenue accruing to the defendant 
company from the business proposed will justify the construction of the siding 
applied for, and that it is practicable. 

It is therefore ordered that the defendant company provide the sidetrack 
adequate for the handling of the business at the yard of the plaintiffs within 
sixty days from this date, upon plaintiffs grading the road and furnishing ties 
necessary for said track. ' Sam. L. Rogeks, 

. Commissioner. 

HART-WARD HARDWARE COMPANY v. SOUTHERN RAILWAY 

COMPANY. 

The complainants in this case testify that, on the afternoon of October 31st, 
they received notice that a P. S. & N. car, No. 8863, loaded with pipe for them, 
had arrived; that on the morning of November 1st they sent their drayman, 
a negro named Norman Freeman, who has since died, to the freight depot, 
with instructions to get the pipe, and that Freeman returned without the pipe 
and reported to them that the car was not placed ; that on November 2d they 
sent him again, with the same instructions, and he returned with the same 
report, that the car was not placed; that on the morning of November 3d 
he was again sent for the pipe, and this time Mr. Applewhite, of the firm of 
Hart-Ward Hardware Company, went with him. Mr. Applewhite testifies 
that when he arrived at the delivery office he asked Mr. Wisman, the railway 
delivery clerk, why he could not get the car, and Mr. Wisman said "the car 
was not in place, but was on the oil-mill track in the gin yard" ; that he told 
him that he had sent on the 1st and 2d, and asked him why he could not get 
it, and that Mr. Wisman replied "it was not placed, but was in the cotton-gin 
yard" ; that he asked Mr. Wisman to have it placed. The complainants fur- 
ther testify that, between 3 and 4 o'clock that afternoon (Saturday), they 
were notified that the car was in place, but it was too late to undertake to 
unload it then, and they had to wait until Monday. 

The office report of this car, made out by the Southern Railway Company's 
agent and filed with the Commission by the complainants, shows that this 
P. S. & N. car, No. 8863, arrived October 30th, 3 P. M. Notice was given Octo- 
ber 31st, 2 P. M. ; ordered placed at the same hour ; was actually placed on 
November 3d, 2 P. M. ; was unloaded November 6th at 6 P. M., being kept five 
hours over the free time allowed by the Commission's demurrage rules, and 
complainants were charged $1 demurrage, which the evidence shows they paid. 

The defendant offers testimony. to show that the car in question was actually 
placed on the 31st of October and remained in place until November 3d, when 
it was knocked out by a shifting engine and replaced in the afternoon. Mr. 
Finlayson testifies that the report of this case first made out and filed with the 
Commission was incorrect ; that the discrepancy was caused by a change being 



DECISIONS AND COMPLAINTS. 237 

made in the clerical force of the office at that time. Mr. Domiell, yard con- 
ductor, testifies that this car was in place "all the time" ; that it was in place 
October 31st, November 1st, November 2d ; was knocked out on the 3d and 
replaced the same day. The yard clerk, J. W. Smith, first testified that the 
car was placed all of the time, except the 3d, from the 31st of October to the 
6th of November, inclusive, but when recalled and referred to his records he 
found that there was no record for this car for two days of this time. Mr. 
Wisman testifies that he told Hart-Ward Hardware Company's drayman, 
Freeman, the car of pipe was there several days before they began to haul it. 
He said "he does not recollect exactly what occurred ; don't recollect what Mr. 
Applewhite said." 

From the evidence in this case the Commission finds the following facts : 

1. That the P. S. & N. car, No. 8863, arrived on October 30th and was 
placed, and the consignee, Hart-Ward Hardware Company, notified of arrival 
on the 31st. 

2. That the consignee sent for the contents of the car every day until they 
were delivered, and was diligent in trying to get his freight. 

3. That the Southern Railway's delivery clerk told Mr. Applewhite on the 
3d that the car in question was not placed that day nor on the 1st or 2d, and 
that the other clerks at the freight office were of the same opinion at the time 
the demurrage was paid by Hart-Ward Hardware Company, and the agent 
gave him the car report, showing the car not placed until 2 P. M. of the 3d. 

The Commission is of the opinion that when a consignee goes to get freight 
he has no means of knowing whether cars are placed, except what the delivery 
clerk or other railway employees tell him ; and if the clerk or agent whose 
duty it is to deliver cars fails to deliver the same upon application, and tells 
the consignee his car is not placed, then the demurrage rules apply, whether 
the car is actually placed or not, and in this case did so apply. 

The Commission is of the further opinion that the complainants are entitled 
to recover demurrage for one day, to the amount of $1 ; and the defendant, the 
Southern Railway Company, is hereby ordered to pay that sum to the Hart- 
Ward Hardware Company. Feanklin McNeill, 

Chairman. 

Commissioner Rogers, dissenting in the conclusion of this order, says : 

The evidence of Messrs. Wisman, delivery clerk, and J. W. Smith, yard 
clerk, whose duties are to place cars and keep a daily record of their position 
and to have delivery of contents to consignee, is that the car in question was 
properly placed on the day after its arfival on the yard, and remained in place 
until the day of its release by consignee, November 6th, except from about 
7 A. M. to 2 P. M. November 3d, which was the result of an accident, and is 
undisputed. 

The evidence of the plaintiffs, that demand before November 3d for the 
delivery of the car's contents to them was made by their colored drayman and 
could not be had, is denied by the positive evidence of Mr. Wisman, the delivery 
clerk, who says, several days before the car of freight was hauled, while the 
drayman was engaged in hauling package freight, he called his attention at 
different times to the car being in place, and asked him why he did not unload 
it, and that the drayman replied "he was not ready for it." 

Therefore, I am of the opinion that dereliction on the part of the railway 
company in placing the car for the delivery of its freight to the consignee in 



238 M". C. COEPOEATIOIS" COMMISSION. 

the time required by the rule is not proven, and that the plaintiffs have not 
established their right to recover demurrage of the railway company in this 
case. Sam. L. Rogers, 

Commissioner. 

HART-WARD HARDWARE COMPANY v. SOUTHERN RAILWAY 

COMPANY. 

This cause coming on to be heard upon exception by defendant, the defend- 
ant being represented by Messrs. Busbee & Son, and the complainant by Mr. 
Frank Ward, the Commission is of the opinion that such exceptions should be 
overruled. 

The Corporation Commission is authorized by section 1100 of the Revisal of 
1905 to make rules governing railroad companies in the placing of cars for 
loading and unloading, and in fixing the time limit for delivery of freight 
after same shall have been received by the transportation companies for ship- 
ment. Under this statute (section 1100, Revisal of 1905) the Corporation 
Commission made the following rule : 

'•When any railroad company fails to deliver freights at the depot, or to 
place loaded cars at an accessible place for unloading within forty-eight hours 
(not including Sundays and legal holidays), computed from 7 o'clock A. M. the 
day after the arrival of same, the shipper or consignee shall be paid $1 per 
day for each day or fraction of a day said delivery is so delayed : Provided, 
the railroad company may require the payment of freight before delivery." 

Complainant alleges that this rule has been violated. 

While the Corporation Commission has no power to render a judgment for 
payment of money, it is its duty to enforce its rules and orders, and the 
power to do so is conferred by section 1086 of the Revisal of 1905. 

The investigation in this case was for the purpose of ascertaining whether 
the rule of the Commission had been violated, and if so, what recompense the 
defendant should make for the wrong or injury. 

The finding of the Commission is to the effect that the defendant should 
pay complainant $1. The argument on behalf of the defendant fails to con- 
vince the Commission that any error was committed at the former hearing. 

It is ordered that all of the exceptions be and they are hereby overruled.
